With curbing climate change one of its top priorities, the Biden administration’s State Department has allocated $30,000 for a grant aimed at helping Chinese citizens be more mindful of climate change.

One may think that the best way to achieve this goal is by funding educational initiatives, contributing to renewable energy investments, or funding a public relations campaign to increase awareness.

Not according to the U.S. State Department. Instead, it created a grant to “bring together Chinese and American artists to create collaborative work that displays positive visions of our collective climate futures.”

It is no mystery why the U.S. would want to target China in its mission to curb carbon emissions. China leads the world in carbon emissions, and its commitment to reducing emissions would be critical in tackling climate change, as President Biden has pledged to do. But is making artwork really the best way to go about it?

The grant says, “This project aims to bring together two groups of Chinese and American artists to collaboratively create two pieces of artwork that portray a vision of a future in which humanity has successfully adapted to the climate crisis and reached zero emissions through technological and behavioral change.”

It continues to say that the art will be on display on the walls of the U.S. Consulate General in Guangzhou for at least six months. Artists in China should attend the opening and workshops/activities for social change.
