How do we work together to end the climate emergency?
Some of us have limited access to water. Some too much. Some have had our water stolen, privatized, contaminated. Some are permanently losing our water source.
What is your relationship to water?
What is your people and/or community’s relationship to water?
How do oppressions and your relationship to water impact how you experience the climate crisis?
What new perspectives, creative solutions and climate justice actions might you offer?
To face and turn around this crisis, we need to build strong relationships.
In Sustaining All Life, we take turns sharing and listening to each other in an intentional way. We call these listening exchanges. Whether we are similar or different, we can connect with each other, human to human.
This process helps us think more clearly, act more powerfully and reduces the divisions caused by oppression of different peoples.
Intentional listening is a tool that can help us create art collaboratively.
Artists create possibilities, invent and transform. Many are calling for action, building awareness, organizing and communicating ideas in ways that reach and inspire people. We are a central part of strengthen our climate justice movements.
Art to end the climate emergency communicates the reality of the situation: the heartbreak of loss, devastation, and destruction, and the possibility of repair, recovery, equity, and community, of restoring our connection to ourselves, each other, and the world around us.
We invite you to submit your artwork. You may choose to share work to inspire action or to provide space for healing and reflection.
We hope to curate and uplift the art made by people from frontline communities. This may include people of color, indigenous peoples, women, young people, no or low income people, and/or those who live in the Global South. If you belong to any of these communities and would like support in submitting artwork, please contact us. All artwork will be considered.
