Artist Deanna Witman and clinical psychologist Will Hafford invite the community to join them for a presentation on the topic of climate change and associated personal and community impacts. This 90-minute exploration considers a diverse range of perspectives drawn from the worlds of art and psychology and will include opportunity for facilitated community dialogue and expression.

Her work questions our relationship to the natural world, our place in the universe, and our responsibly to this earth and those who inhabit it. She is an Assistant Professor in Environmental Humanities at Unity College and the Managing Editor of Hawk & Handsaw – The Journal of Creative Sustainability.
