Art can help communicate complex scientific information about disaster risk. Art can be used to educate, inspire, and motivate people to build resilience to disasters. Art bridges divides in language, age, and ability in many ways. Art provides alternative ways of looking at the world and its most difficult challenges. The Art of
Resilience

In the 21st century, there is perhaps no more important set of challenges than understanding the impacts of disasters and environmental changes on our communities and societies, particularly in the developing world.

Art provides a powerful way to communicate complex ideas, inspire action, and connect communities — helping advance resilience.
