Grimes, Bon Iver, The 1975 and more are teaming up for an exhibition that centers on climate change awareness. Spearheaded by Undercurrent, an event that invites artists, musicians and creatives to present their unique installations in response to climate change, the exhibition is the first of its kind, Variety reports.

Undercurrent’s exhibition focuses on three non-profit organizations: Ocean Conservancy, Kiss the Ground and Global Forest Generation. All involved artists will produce their own unique immersive experience in support of the partnered nonprofits. Jorja Smith, Miguel, Jayda G, Khruangbin and more have also signed on for the project.

“It’s an exciting time to be working and experimenting in the music space, with technology rapidly changing the way that we create and consume art,” co-founders Steve Milton and Brett Volker told Variety. “We’re thrilled to be offering music fans new ways to experience work by the artists they love and we hope they leave feeling inspired to take action around the climate.”

Undercurrent’s inaugural event in New York City opens Thursday September 9, and tickets are now available on their website. Specifically, the exhibition will be set in Brooklyn with over 60,000 square feet of installations and programs.
