CHICAGO, March 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Rainworks Omnimedia LLC, www.rainworksomnimedia.com a producer of traveling museum exhibitions revealed its 2017 – 2018 exhibitions currently in development. The Chicago based social innovation company, that views museum exhibitions as agents for social change, is developing an exhibition on climate change for a US tour, and an exhibition on gender imbalance for an India tour.
"We turned to climate change because it's a complex and urgent topic that needs to be better understood," said Gail Vida Hamburg, Founder-CEO, and Master Planner- Designer of the exhibitions. Citing a survey by Yale Project on Climate Change Communications, she said 75% of Americans would like to know more about climate change. "Interactive, immersive, multimedia storytelling will enable museum visitors of all ages to engage with this dull and dense topic. And since ours is a traveling exhibition, it is a national program," Hamburg said.
For Earth Echoes, Rainworks has assembled a dream team of scientists, experts, storytellers, and exhibit designers to coalesce around the issue. "The commitment is to scientific truth, and to interpret the science through compelling story and stellar design," said Hamburg, a multimedia writer who previously developed five science story experiences for the globe touring Body Worlds.
The second project, Aatmaja (Sanskrit for daughter) is an art exhibition about India's gender imbalance crisis that will be produced in India. "Gender imbalance is destabilizing India and making it a dangerous place for girls and women," said Hamburg, whose parents were born in India. "I felt an obligation to bring India's academics, intellectuals, feminists, artists, and designers together to tell the story of the Indian girl, of gender imbalance, and of the strength and resilience of India's women. The Divine Feminine is manifested in this collaboration."
Todd Hoskins, the company's Impact Advisor, reiterates that these topics need to be championed. "Rainworks is taking the critical issues of our time and translating their reality and urgency into something compelling and easily accessible. Both represent groundbreaking opportunities for corporate sponsors and foundations that value education, the environment, gender equality and social responsibility, and impact investors."
Earth Echoes will tour pop-up "Lyceum" venues and museums. Aatmaja will be operated by tour organizers in India.
