Limited Capacity filling up

Layel Camargo and Favianna Rodriguez will discuss the intersections of climate change and racial justice, and explore cultural strategies for helping to protect our only home. Our current relationship to the earth is based on destructive myths that have shaped our cultural imaginations since colonization, building a society around fossil fuel extraction and labor exploitation. We are in an urgent time given the climate crisis and now more than ever we need artist leadership. Join Camargo and Rodriguez as they discuss the intersections of climate justice and racial justice and more, and explore cultural strategies for helping to protect our only home. How, then, do we undergo a process of massive and rapid transformative change to save our species and be in best relationship with the planet? How can we create a new mythology through the creation of culture. Artists can help us see and lead us to the future we need to thrive along mother earth.
