As climate change wreaks havoc on the planet, so too it inflicts turmoil on our psyche. Bureau of Meteoranxiety (BoMa) is here to help.

In this future-focused live art experience, artists Alex Tate and Olivia Tartaglia create an agency designed to address symptoms of climate change fear. Expose your woes to experimental visual therapies and sensory remedies. Beware of technical glitches and hyperbolic emotional responses – BoMa is in beta phase. Bringing ecoanxiety into sharp view, this immersive, thought-provoking work offers participants new language and coping strategies to help stay above the metaphorical and literal flood line.
