Part of the street program
Artists Anne Apparu-Hall and Ted Hall, along with a group of friends, will present a “spider web” of talks, demonstrations, collectives, and workshops that will further a vision of a functioning, elated city: a city where we remember; a city where we are together truly; a city where we are inspired by each other; a city where sustainability is the rule; a city that is an organized jungle, nourished and run by children who learn from devoted supportive adults, who conduct scientific studies, who cook for the needy, and who play and contribute to this a new system. We will present and honor the Two Row Wampum treaty; make seedballs, mudballs, mycometeorites, ice balls, and more to remediate and heal the soil and water; and grow vegetation that is strong and supportive of this bioregion in order to feed and heal ourselves and clean the air. We will present a curriculum to be adopted by the city’s youth: as Green Scouts and Green Corps, we will form Green Hubs. All of these programs are based on our shared responsibilities as citizens who earn, learn, and act together in the city.
11 AM Leyla Mozayen will set up for an ongoing live performance that will map and represent the day’s presentations. She will be making a sculpture with found objects.
