Creative Catalysts: Performance Art Reacting to the Climate Crisis (Spring 2022)

Creative Catalysts Symposium Flyer SP22

The impacts of climate change are already affecting humanity and will impact generations to come; while the issue is real and ongoing reaction and change are slow. How do you get people to notice a crisis that is happening all around them? Cue creativity. Glass Clouds Ensemble (Chamber Music Ensemble, New York City) uses chamber music to highlight productive conversations around the climate crisis. Large scale change is essential and it is necessary for independent voices to build the momentum to achieve change. Join us on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, at 4 PM CST via Zoom to experience the unique ways in which these artists harness performance to inspire action in response to our global climate crisis. Produced by Nina Friedman, Sigrid Neptun, Reilly Ribeiro, Jing Shi (all MAAAP 2023).
