Climate Conversations – Science Dance: Can Dance Move Us Toward Sustainability?

April 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Talking about the climate crisis and its impact on the planet and our communities is challenging. Is there a way to bring joy into the conversation? Can art and movement inspire hope and action? One innovative approach is science dance, a program that uses dance to express science concepts. Join marine sustainability scientist and dance choreographer Dr. Lekelia Jenkins for a talk about how dance can help people process and understand difficult topics.

This virtual program is part of the Climate Conversations series hosted by Arizona Humanities and made by possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Dr. Lekelia “Kiki” Jenkins is a marine sustainability scientist, science dance choreographer, and Associate Professor at Arizona State University.  Her commitment to nature was nurtured by her childhood in Baltimore, Maryland, where she fished and crabbed recreationally on the Chesapeake Bay. She received her PhD from Duke University by pioneering a new field of study into the invention and adoption of marine conservation technology.  Her research centers on the human dimensions of marine sustainability solutions, including fisheries conservation technologies and marine renewable energy. Her work has led to regulatory changes that allow more sustainable fishing practices, has advised international fisheries diplomacy, and has informed renewable energy policy. Dr. Jenkins also studies and practices science dance as a means of science engagement, science communication, and social change.
