After a century and a half of dependency on energy derived from fossil fuels, our society has begun its transition out of the Fossil Fuel Era. This moment represents more than a massive economic and political shift––it heralds a transition into a new cultural era. In order to move society forward, innovation and inspiration are crucial.

Fossil Free Festival is calling on artists, scientists, engineers, and everyday “MacGyvers" to show the way! Submit a proposal today:

Fossil Free Fest's curators are issuing an open call for solutions––from the practical to the fantastical––that envision, encourage, and enable our societal transition away from extractive energy and that express a vision for a regenerative society and economy. We are seeking the submission of proposals, prototypes, sketches, digital works, and renderings that exist within the spheres of art, design, science, and social equity.

FFF's curatorial team will select a handful of solutions projects to feature on-site during the festival in April at our two venues, Joan Mitchell Center and Grow Dat Youth Farm, as physical objects, digital renderings, or paper images. We will feature a larger compendium of proposals online on

About Fossil Free Fest
Fossil Free Fest is a three-day festival, presented by Antenna, that will take place April 6-8, 2018 at Joan Mitchell Center and Grow Dat Youth Farm. It is envisioned as a dedicated time and space––uplifted by food, music, and art––to explore the complexities of funding arts and education (individuals and institutions) with fossil fuel money. Fossil Free Fest will bring together individuals from across stakeholder sectors––artists, organizers, educators, scientists, administrators, oil industry workers, philanthropists, and politicians––in deep conversation to question our complicity, responsibility, and agency when it comes to our work, money, and climate change.

Presented by Antenna in partnership with Gulf Restoration Network, The Broad Theater,, Joan Mitchell Center, New Orleans Center for the Gulf South, Public Lab, Hidden History Tours, LA Bucket Brigade, Another Gulf is Possible, Working Films, and Story Shift.
