Space for Action: Rebuilding a Sustainable World
A free virtual event featuring performances and talks by Rev. Mariama White-Hammond, Esperanza Spalding, Bill McKibben, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Ran Blake, Peter Godart, Edmar Colón, Tutti Druyan, Tiandra Ray, and Ricky Richardson, presented by Space for Action in collaboration with the MIT Office of Sustainability, Arts at MIT, and MIT Music and Theater Arts.
This 90-minute performance-conversation brings together leading musicians, scientists, politicians, and activists to reflect on how the pandemic is reshaping our relationship with the earth and the opportunity we have to rebuild. The event will also include moderated breakout sessions for attendees, sparking discussion about how we can take control of our trajectory and imagine what a sustainable and equitable future looks like in our post-pandemic world.
A Zoom link and password will be emailed to all registered attendees on the day of the event.
About the Organization
Space for Action is a call for all humans to convene, process, and make progress on the existential threat posed by climate change through curated collective experiences at the intersection of art, science, and culture. As a format, Space for Action aims to 1) address and de-stigmatize the feelings of isolation and powerlessness that accompany this threat, thereby making space in our hearts and minds for action, and 2) provide literal (and virtual) space for people to engage with one another, the issues, and their cultural implications to foster real innovation and to re-imagine our society post-climate change.
