To provide our local community with an immersive, collaborative experience that emotionally connects them to current environmental issues facing Texas.
“The problem is not precision. The problem is perception.” – Anne McClintock
How will designing an escape room experience make Texas more resilient to increasingly severe weather changes? By connecting the research and data collected on our changing climate with an emerging emphasis on immersive experience in the arts, we hope to create a compelling call to action that permeates all disciplines.
This project is our response to the grand challenge set forth by Planet Texas 2050. To address the most urgent issues affecting our region, Planet Texas 2050 is committed to developing programs and policy recommendations that will improve Texas’ adaptability, sustainability, and resilience.
