This week on State of Art we’re learning about the Anchorage Museum’s new Teen Climate Communicators program. Teens in grades 9-12 will work with museum educators and use museum resources to discuss and find solutions to climate change. The fall 2021 session will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, from Sept. 15 through Dec. 8. The deadline to sign up is 11:59 p.m. Sept. 7.

We’re joined by Anchorage Museum educators Molissa Udevitz and Missy Gaulke, as we discuss the program, why the focus on teens and what participants can expect.
