Letters To The Earth at O N C A
12 April 2019 Free
2:30 pm – 6:00 pm
In collaboration with Youth Strike 4 Climate (Brighton) and Decolonise Sussex ONCA is hosting a reading of Letters to the Earth.
Letters to the Earth is the first project of the newly launched Culture Declares Emergency, which brings the arts and cultural community together for an appropriate response to the climate emergency.
Letters to the Earth urged people to write a letter of response to this crisis. These could be letters to or from the Earth, future or past generations, those who hold positions of power and influence, other species. The idea was open to interpretation: it could come from a personal place, be dramatic in form, be a call to action. The invitation was open to all – to think beyond the human narrative and to bear witness to the scale and horror of this crisis.
The reading will take place between 2:30 & 3:00pm
After the reading, we will be hosting a drop-in for people to write their own letters to the Earth in our gallery throughout the day.
