Friday 5 February 2021

Groundwater Arts presented Green New Theater with Producer Hub (ASL-interpreted) livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Friday 5 February 2021 at 3:30 p.m. PST (San Francisco, UTC -8) 4:30 p.m. MST (Colorado, UTC -7) / 5:30 p.m. CST (Chicago, UTC -6) / 6:30 p.m. EST (New York, UTC -5).

Let’s talk about a Green New Theatre. Producing ethically in 2020 means shifting our practices in light of the climate crisis - so where to start? In this session, our friends at Groundwater Arts will share their work on their core community organizing project, building a Green New Theatre. Green New Theatre is a movement-building document that outlines strategies, ideas, and principles that will help individuals and arts institutions working in live performance change how they work in order to adapt in the face of the climate crisis. Whether it's looking at community accountability or divesting from fossil fuels, there are many ways to get started with this very doable work that, for many in the arts sector, is already underway. Groundwater Arts is a half-Indigenous, majority-POC collective of four women whose get-it-done energy fits right in with our Producer Hub ethos.

Fun fact: Groundwater Arts is one of the Producer Hub's first fiscally sponsored organizations.

About Groundwater Arts: Groundwater Arts is re-envisioning the arts field. Their goal is to help arts institutions and individuals move toward a just and equitable future that responds to the ongoing crisis of climate change by embracing an all-encompassing view of how they move through the world. Groundwater does this through movement-building, consulting, facilitation, and embodied practice. They call this a "climate justice lens." Climate change is an environmental AND cultural challenge; and arts institutions are uniquely positioned to shift the narrative and help build a more just and generative future. We work to build alignment and collaboration with the movement for climate justice across sectors, across borders, and across all artificial boundaries that separate us from each other and from the planet.
