This event started with the opener "when crisis strikes, we have to get creative". In the wake of George Floyd’s brutal killing, and the national wave of overdue actions for racial justice, we believe that motto is only more true. To reflect the moment we are all in, the theme of this event is evolving to address art and actions that can be applied to the Black Lives Matter movement as well. We are grateful to Naawéiyaa for continuing to make time for this event, and we are even more excited to have him hosting because he is so well equipped to guide us through the intersections of climate justice, decolonization and racial justice here in Alaska.
When crisis strikes, we have to get creative. The coronavirus is forcing us to reimagine a future already made uncertain by climate change. That's why we need your help getting creative about fighting climate change. Hunker Down for Climate Change is an online event series that lets you fight climate change from your living room, having fun and making art that creatively expresses the need for climate action now. Will you join us on Wednesday, June 10 at 5:30 p.m.?
We’re excited to be partnering with Naawéiyaa Tagaban, a poet, activist, prison abolitionist, weaver, and left-handed storyteller for this event. Naawéiyaa will be helping us get creative on climate change by making stencils to mass produce designs onto things like T-shirts or posters, and discussing their use in direct actions.
Will you get creative on climate change with us?
