Integrating Environment + Culture for Lasting and Satisfying Change
Addressing our disconnection with Mother Earth and the scope of the environmental challenges we face today requires us to recommit to strategies and practices focused on grassroots community organizing and involvement by communities most impacted by environmental harm. Join us for an active engagement with the work of the Center for Earth, Energy and Democracy (CEED) - integrating community based research, policy development and art-based community organizing to affect systemic cultural and policy change; with the community of creative community development leaders in the Twin Cities and world-wide; and with how art and culture reconnect us to our earthen home and move us to change systems and habits at the root of our current ecological problems.
Shalini Gupta of CEED and artist/culture weaver Mankwe Ndosi will reflect and engage the integration of art into organizing and policy efforts - its elegance and effectiveness in moving both individual and collective work forward.
Join us at the Riverview Cafe and Wine Bar for the final Movement Building session for this year. Be part of the conversation as we discuss issues related to social, racial, economic and environmental justice. Help us transform emerging ideas into mainstream values!
