Letters to the Earth Workshop

24 March 2022
5:30 pm
7:00 pm

Join the CDE Southeast Coastal Hub at Hastings Common Room for a free Letters to the Earth workshop that explores the subject of the climate and ecological emergency.

Letters to the Earth is a creative participatory campaign launched in 2019 in collaboration with Culture Declares Emergency. It has generated, received and amplified thousands of letters to or from the Earth from people all over the world.

This workshop will create space for participants to share responses to the climate and ecological emergency, and facilitate the generation of creative and personal responses through the writing and sharing of Letters – which can be to or from the Earth, another species, person, moment in time or place. Expect new conversations and a chance to find common ground and new collaborations. The facilitator is Kay Michael, a theatre-maker, co-founder of Culture Declares and the director of Letters to the Earth. All ages are welcome.

This free session will take place at Hastings’ lovely new community space The Common Room on March 24th from 5.30-7pm. It will be followed by a Transition Town Hastings Food for Thought pot luck supper – please bring a dish to share if you would like to stay on for the evening.
