Christy George is concerned that too many Americans are in denial about climate change and is trying a find a new approach to change their minds. She believes that people join social movements once they’re convinced it’s the right thing to do, so she’s collecting personal stories from locals who have been impacted by rising tides and temperatures for her new book, My Vanishing Hometowns.

This week on Inside the Arts we'll find out how two Brazilian night club owners are promoting New Orleans throughout their home country. We'll look at the connection between the BP oil spill and a major arts center. Is there a silver lining? And, we'll take a walk on the wild side as we trek into the woods for a magical celebration of art and nature.

Airs Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. and Thursday at 7:35 a.m.
 

It’s time for the festival in the forest, known as FORESTival. Music, art and nature come alive in the 3rd annual celebration at A Studio in the Woodsan artist retreat in Lower Coast Algiers.
