Where science fails, art may be able to step in. As one of the world's most prominent climate change artists, Zaria believes that her medium can bring awareness, action, and emotion to an issue that has stirred so much controversy in today's society. In her talk, Zaria takes us on a journey through her artistic life, telling tales from her travels, revealing her incredible process, and sharing her own personal strife surrounding the death of her mother. Zaria's stunning drawings echo her energetic presence and compelling personality.
