With the understanding that the Climate Crisis is deeply entwined with other ongoing injustices and struggles, Space Saloon and Creative Migration hosted a safe, comfortable and non-judgmental space to verbally confront the topic of Solastasia, the paralysing melancholia induced from environmental distress.

During Field Workshop, hosted at the Institute for Contemporary Art Los Angeles (ICA LA), we prototyped the Climate Crisis Hotline in parallel with a series of participatory workshops. The hotline, which remains active, launched on KCHUNG Radio. Similar to a confession booth or wishing well, our multi-faceted platform sought to validate individuals’ concerns and provide an opportunity to participate in a community dialogue. Through a variety of outreach and engagement methods we invited members of the public to connect, unwind and respond.

The project was initially designed as a therapeutic space and mobile sound booth, taking its influence from the playbooks of therapy offices, hospital waiting rooms, confessional stalls and meditation spaces. The project was adapted on account of covid-related lockdowns.
