We Want to Live: Our Water, Art & Climate Justice Movements
- This event has passed.
November 12, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Ending the climate emergency that threatens all life on the planet requires masses of people coming together to put our creative minds in action towards climate solutions.
Hear from speakers from frontline nations, tribes and communities in Africa and the Americas, and other communities. They will speak from their personal experiences, highlight their relationship to water and how art making is at the center of their community building to end the climate crisis.
Want to share your story during the workshop? We want to hear from you!
Register and let us know you’re interested in being considered.
Artists and our art are powerful. We connect, communicate, inspire, mobilize and transform the world. Artists and our art play a critical role in the collective effort to build climate justice movements. As artists, climate activists and people who care about the present and future generations of our shared home on this planet, we need opportunities to share the impact of the climate crisis, including noticing our changing relationship to water. We need space and communities to celebrate our efforts, successes, defeats and fresh creative ways to end the climate emergency.
Join artists, activists, and people who care about our relationship to water as we share stories, make connections, engage in deep listening tools, co-create art and strengthen our climate justice movements.
