CREATE CORTADA'S ECO-ART PROJECTS WHERE YOU LIVE
Thank you for watching my TED Talk!
As you heard, I’m a strong believer in using socially engaged art to generate awareness and action around the climate crisis, which is why I’m inviting you to bring my projects to life in your community.
Watch the videos below and then check out their accompanying tool kit PDFs to see how you can get started. Good luck!

The Reclamation Project creates vertical mangrove nurseries as living installations that eventually rebuild ecosystems above and below the waterline.
The Underwater creates elevation-driven public art installations that reveal the vulnerability of coastal communities to rising seas, spark climate conversations, and catalyze civic engagement.
For three decades, artist Xavier Cortada has worked collaboratively with communities around the world to create art projects that address important social and environmental concerns. The artist created a nonprofit, the Xavier Cortada Foundation, to grow and advance many of the socially engaged art projects.
