Set in today's Gary, Indiana, Kaminski's Lot follows the journey of a vanload of IUN students and their professor, who must take refuge in a greenhouse at a seemingly abandoned lot when a disastrous storm shuts down the area. In a celebration of storytelling, led by an urban farmer and her niece, Kaminiski's Lot places the questions of legacy, culture and personal histories on stage, in a time of climate crisis. Kaminiski's Lot is an original play by Theatre Northwest Climate Narrative Playwright-in-Residence Jeff Biggers.

How We Imagine Climate Change and Why It Matters
How do the ways we imagine climate change—in terms of our
cultural identities and values, the kinds of stories we engage,
and the images we view—influence how we understand and
respond to the issue?
