Responding To A Slow-Motion Emergency: Communicating Climate Change Wednesday, January 22, 2020 6:00PM – 7:30PM
How do you talk about a problem that’s too big to see? How do you demand action when it’s easier to delay? How does art speak in response to science? Come watch a wide-ranging group of artists and professors discuss these questions and more. From DePaul University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Paola Cabal, James Fairhall, Liam Heneghan, Rebecca Johns-Trissler, and Kathryn Schaffer will pool their experience and expertise to help you understand how to grapple with something as daunting—and important—as climate change.
What Can I Do About Climate Change? Open House Tuesday, February 4, 2020 12:00PM – 3:00PM
We want to help, but we don’t know how. We want a simple solution, but it doesn’t exist. Stop by one of the many tables in DePaul’s Richardson Library during this open house to learn about small steps you can take to have an impact in the long fight against climate change. Organizations from across campus and the city of Chicago will be available to teach, engage, and inspire you to make a difference.
About John T. Richardson Library
There’s nothing architecturally distinctive about this building. It’s just a functioning university library. DePaul’s four-story library opened in 1992 and provides 1,100 study seats, three study lounges, 14 group study rooms, a computer lab, three conference rooms and numerous special collections. The library was named after DePaul’s ninth president, Rev. John T. Richardson, C.M., in 1993.
Designed by Lohan Associates, the library was expected to meet the needs of faculty and students and keep pace with changing technology.
Construction of the library also resulted in the closing of Seminary Avenue between Fullerton and Belden Streets, creating DePaul’s first “quad.”
