This is an open invitation for any climate artists, advocates, and activists ages 19+ to participate in a collective art-making project to raise awareness about endangered species in Canada. Facilitated by accomplished First Nation nehiyaw iskwew (Cree) artist, Sandra Lamouche, participants will make artwork or puppets to honour an endangered species of their own choosing. We will record an honour dance together for a video to be shared on Earth Day 2023.
Please note that it is asked that participants attend all three sessions. If you are not able to do so for whatever reason please reach out to the organizing artist at sandraiskwew (at ) gmail.com

I released 2 vids on youtube seeking to incite all Canadian Musicians and Poets to enter a clearcut; film, play, recite, show, and oppose. Hope other artists will link to this, provoke a spontaneous movement of Artists to end Clearcutting this decade, like before I die. Easier than ending hospital cigarette smoking and much more fun, but we all need to lean into this and put the time in.
Discover the ways artistic practices are making an impact in how we talk about climate change, implement climate action, and imagine a healthy future. Understand ways artistic practices can bring together diverse voices, stories and experiences to support transformative conversations,
support community, influence wider cultural conversations on climate change to advance climate justice and empower people to take action.
Speakers include: Chantal Stormsong Chagnon, Alana Bartol, Nikki Martens and Melanie Kloetzel
Re-Imagining the Future is a teach-in on fostering environmental stewardship in theatre and performance education, conceived of, and hosted by, the Environmental Stewardship Working Group of the Canadian Association for Theatre Research (CATR).

The first in a series, the Sirens book is a work of fiction in the genre of magical realism and intended for a young adult audience.

For Charmaine Lurch, rewilding starts with paying attention to the natural world around us – and learning how to listen.
