Natural History Museum’s Los Angeles at the Intersections, is a celebration of science and culture. Neighborhood murals reflecting this city’s state of mind, climate activism across all communities, the transforming habitats of humans and animals, and cuisines of the city as L.A.’s cultural signifiers, we’ll find that the ties that connect the city together are strongest at the intersections.
Today’s program is: HOME X HABITATS
The habitats and environment has changed for humans and animals. Adapting and changing to make home, home again. What is home in a work-from-home world? How are we performing in work and study, and what social disparities must we now confront? How has it changed the dynamics of domestic life, and how is this all impacting our mental health? Climate crises and the pandemic had, and are having, a different/more pronounced effect on our environment and the creatures in it. Although some wildlife has thrived as we moved off the roads and out of our energy-consuming offices, we also moved more towards nature. Nature has been a source of calm and connection, and an opportunity for social justice for nature groups that focus on intersectionality and inclusion, but how can we continue to cultivate culture around environmental responsibility?
