August 10, 2019 - 9 to 11 a.m. Art & Action in a Warming World, A workshop with Juno Lamb. As we see increasing evidence of the climate crisis around us, from more dramatic weather patterns to news of loss of biodiversity to migration around the globe, it's easy to feel overwhelmed or powerless, or to feel grief or despair, even as we see social movements addressing the climate crisis springing up around the world. According to Marshall Ganz, to be successful, social movements need to operate with five emotional cylinders: hope, solidarity, feeling you can make a difference, urgency and anger. Art is a central way to tell stories that circumvent the mind and speak directly to the heart and emotions. Whether we want to share stories that help engage others, or to explore our own experience of this time we live in, art offers us ways to do so.
On Saturday, August 10, from 9-11 AM, join multimedia artist Juno Lamb in considering some of the ways art can help us be present to our own emotions and communicate the urgency we may be feeling to others. The workshop will include conversation, guided contemplation, and experimental mixed media art making. This workshop is free. A voluntary $5-10 contribution toward materials costs is appreciated.
