Florida Events

The theme for this exhibition is informed and inspired by Jeff Goodell’s searing new book, The Heat Will Kill You First: Life and Death on a Scorched Planet. We are seeking artworks that relate to the first order threat and prime mover of all other impacts of our climate crisis - HEAT. Participants can use any medium. All approaches - traditional and non-traditional - are welcome. We are open to the plurality of styles and expressions that the word HEAT, the idea of HEAT, allows.

The Symposium on Flooding Adaptation - Spotlighting Solutions for Florida will be held October 28-31, 2024, in Kissimmee, Florida at the Embassy Suites Orlando – Lake Buena Vista South.

Across the state, inland and coastal communities both large and small are taking bold steps to prepare for a wetter future. This convening of practitioners, researchers, advocates, and community stakeholders will focus on projects in Florida that demonstrate a paradigm shift in addressing flooding impacts on community design, ecosystem restoration, housing, and infrastructural development.

The goals of the symposium are:

  • Share project findings and learn how they address flooding impacts
  • Share successful approaches and lessons learned from a community perspective.
  • Promote interdisciplinary exchange of ideas.

During this conference, teams representing site-specific projects from across Florida’s diverse landscape will share their work, process, experiences, and results. In addition to providing participants with opportunities to cultivate new partnerships, this exchange of knowledge will result in the publication of an edited volume of case studies spotlighting solutions to flooding in Florida. A call for presentations will be forthcoming in the next few weeks.

If your work focuses on any aspect of flooding adaptation, you should participate in this symposium! Join us and learn how Florida is adapting its built environment to not only survive, but to thrive in these new conditions.
