July 31 and August 1 @ Northampton Center for the Arts
Festival Statement of some kind - We as artists recognize the interdependent web in which we live, relying on and valuing each other and this Earth which is our home. In this arts festival we celebrate our union and dependence on the whole.
Workshops on July 31
New Fables For A New World Northampton Center for the Arts (1- 4pm- temporary time)
Fables teach lessons, offer wisdom, encourage compassion and suggest needed change. Through guided experimentation with sound, words, and found objects, this workshop turns concerns for the environment into performative activism. Engaging in a wide range of arts experiments and drawing on both scientific knowledge and personal stories we will build new and original fables to address climate-related emergencies. This workshop intensive is designed for artists and non-artists.
