The Problem

We will demonstrate how the Arts work together with Reason to inspire Environmental Action. We educate with speakers and move hearts with powerful works of environmental art.

Our Plan

This Festival will take place Sunday, December 10th, 2017. It will feature powerful art works, speakers and workshops. Performances feature works which combine world-class musicians, videos filled with natural images and the work of environmental artists and tapes which fill the space with 'music concrete' compositions comprised of hundreds of natural sounds. These works take the audience on a journey through natural settings and into mythological space. They shake people by the collar, make immediate the terror of climate change and leave them in spiritual awe at the beauty of nature. Speakers, such scientists and leaders of local environmental organizations will provide education and blue prints for action steps. We hope that this combination of Reason and Emotion may result in lasting action. There are two main events. The 11AM event is for family audiences, the evening event is more hard hitting.
