Public galleries and museums like MAG&M, as shared spaces, are ideally placed to bring together dynamic interdisciplinary communities and audiences to explore alternative viewpoints, new ideas, and ways of working to effect real-world change. As agents of change, artists and designers often lead reflection, innovation, and action on contemporary environmental issues.

CEAD will feature multi-year exhibitions and public programs using research-led programming, experimental initiatives, and audience and local community participation to grow the culture of sustainability. Artists, designers, traditional knowledge-holders, scientists, economists, psychologists, audiences, and local communities will be invited to add their voices through artistic participation, viewership, and creative activation.
