Cool Earth – Summer Solstice Parade Ensemble 2018 (1 min video)
Art helps to make our movement inviting, and gives people of all ages and backgrounds a way to participate and draw media attention to important issues. You don’t need experience or particular skills to join us, just a desire to create beautiful and powerful imagery or music, and/or a desire to engage in other creative forms of outreach and networking.
Please let Lisa know if you want to help!
What we do
This workgroup grew out of the coal work group, through its members’ networking with other climate groups and the public, and creating impressive visuals for coal train actions. We began with a huge ensemble in the Solstice Parade in the first couple months after 350 Seattle formed. Since then, we’ve provided art and visuals for all 350 Seattle workgroups and actions, done a lot of networking and coalition work, and launched the community wide Cascadia Climate Action website and calendar (thanks to Mary and the rest of the team for this amazing resource!), We strive to make connections with individuals and communities to ensure that the climate movement is effective and responsive for all of us. We primarily focus our outreach on visual imagery, hands-on activities, messaging, dance, music, and theater…but we’re also open to other creative ideas. We are currently in a growth phase where we are creating teams to take on many aspects of the organizing and welcome you’re participation at any level.
