The California Imagist Project


Created by Carly Creley, John Brantingham, and Elder Zamora, the California Imagist Movement builds communities that use art, science, and history to examine the natural and human environment in California, while addressing environmental and social justice issues.


Often, people feel excluded from the pursuit of science because it feels that the discipline is reserved for an elite few. They feel as though history does not tell their story. The California Imagist Movement bridges these gaps by talking about science in a human way that empowers people to learn about and tell their own histories, those that have often been forgotten.
