job of artists

Climate of Concern is a festival of nine short plays on the theme of global warming. One play is by Don DeLillo.

Festival organiser Lawrence Weschler (acclaimed non-fiction author of Calamities of Exile and Vermeer in Bosnia) says: 'Scientists and policy wonks have had their chance and have not made this real for people. That is the job of artists.'

The plays take place on Mon, Tues and Weds at the Atlas Room, New York University, the Segal Center, City University of New York, and the Rosenthal Pavilion of the Kimmel Center. More info: New York Institute for the Humanities.
