Lindy is partnering with Mural Arts for The Art of Sustainability 2019 this Saturday at Drexel, where we'll hear from leaders around the country about the role of arts and culture in challenging the cause and effects of climate change. We'll be tackling tough questions like:
- What do we as a society actually want and need to sustain?
- What must we change or relinquish in order to protect what matters most?
- What can we reclaim, or learn anew, in order to create a world that is truly just and sustainable for all people and future generations
- What is the role of arts and culture in helping us embrace and realize the creative potential of these unparalleled times?
The event is curated by Helicon, and we've lined up great speakers including:
- Alexis Frasz—How culture and creative practice can help address environmental issues and build people power.
- Dan Borelli—How art helped Ashland, Massachusetts wake up to its unresolved toxic legacy so that it could heal, demand change, and begin to build a different future.
- Tommy Joshua—How the North Philadelphia Peace Park is building a culture of regeneration and renewal.
- Aviva Kapust—How the Village of Arts and Humanities uses arts and culture as a tool for transforming lives and building healthy, sustainable communities.
- Eve Mosher—How art can help people understand the impact of climate change on their own lives, and the role of the artist in an era of climate crisis.
