To link our community in a collective consciousness and expression of the interdependence of humanity, wildlife, and the earth itself.
To raise awareness, to educate, to connect, and to empower all segments of our community to become more active participants in protecting our environment. The climate problem is a human issue. We have the technology to transition to clean, affordable energy, and we need to empower each one of us, individually and collectively, to overcome the personal and political obstacles. We welcome work that reflects our relationship with the environment — the positives and the negative.
This is open to everyone—young and old, various organizations and groups, schools, social entities. We are looking for different forms of expression—spoken word, written word, visual, musical, movement, theatrical. We plan to activate this beautiful space with ideas and expressions and images to reach within ourselves and reach out to one another as we link our community in a greater understanding and passion toward protecting our environment.
Performing Artists will “own” their event or exhibition, and will be allocated space, time, or whatever else is needed for their presentation.
