Arundhati Roy with Naomi Klein: On the Fate of the Earth

As part of our annual Jonathan Schell Lecture Series, internationally-renowned author and activist Arundhati Roy will make a rare U.S. appearance, in conversation with our fellow Naomi Klein on life at the brink of environmental collapse.


Every year Type Media Center hosts a gala where we award the Puffin Prize for Creative Citizenship, a $100,000 award given to an individual who has challenged the status quo through courageous, distinctive, and socially responsible work. Previous winners have included Colin Kaepernick, Amy Goodman, and the Parkland students who founded March for Our Lives. This year’s gala will be held on December 10th, 2019 at the IAC building in New York City.
