ARTIVISM! Changing Climate Change

A colorful example of plastic art

Use the arts to change climate change. Process and respond creatively to this moment – exploring and possibly sharing your feelings / art about plastics, earth, water, racism, carbon, and species extinction to spark systemic change on the flood of plastics polluting the earth. Join for dinner, a short artist’s talk, and hands on art making & artivism. Options to share your art with legislators who are considering laws to make big corporations responsible for the packaging they create. Materials will be on hand. Please also bring a few pieces of plastic packaging trash such as chip bags, wrappers, and other non-recyclable plastics if you are able to.
