ECO-ANXIETY WORKSHOP for ACTIVISTS: Gentle movement, Breathing techniques, Yoga, Dance, Nutrition in times of intersecting stressors of Covid-19 and the Climate Crisis

An anxious self produces a stressed body. A stressed body is a less resilient system. A less resilient system compromises our ability to meet challenges and persevere.

Gentle movement session led by Kristin Kusanovich(SCU Department of Theatre & Dance) and stress, yoga and nutrition experts Mukta Gadkari and Jill Lacher, is bookended by a brief discussion of the relationship between covid-19 and the climate crisis on both embodied and global levels. Chair, floor or standing options will be given. Dress comfortably, clear a little space, and get your notebooks out! 

Same session offered at two times: 8:30-10 AM & 10:20–11:50 AM

ART FOR CLIMATE'S SAKE w Kristin Kusanovich & Brian Thorstenson

 

ART for CLIMATE'S SAKE:

MUSIC & VISUAL ART at 4PM

THEATRE & DANCE at 7PM

Storytelling and artistic expression are universal ways of being and knowing, of mirroring reality or shaping it. From visual art to music, from theatre to dance, these sessions feature art works and performance projects driven by data, by advocacy, and by the creative capacity of artists to contribute to 'eco-conversion.' 

Offered at two times: 4 PM focusing on Visual Arts & Music, & 7 PM focusing on Dance and Theatre. Enjoy a presentation of videos, sound files and illustrated climate crisis art as well as live play readings and audience discussion of the power of art to move (and perhaps save) more than mountains. 

RSVP for either session of
