When Corona met climate change... what changed?
Time & Location
About the Event
A series of live, short (under 3 minutes), and creative responses to the intersection of coronavirus and climate change, 50 years after Earth Day and 50 years before Ecotopia Day (EarthDay+100).
Think of it as a virtual human chain of “emotional weather reports” from the sagging century-midpoint between the first global teach-in on the environment (April 22, 1970) and an anticipated ecotopian world (which we are optimistically dating to April 22, 2070). Spiked with visions of how to get from here to there.
When: EarthDay+50, April 22, 2020, beginning 12 noon EDT / 4 pm GMT.
Where: Online, planet Earth.
If you are interested in presenting via webcam at this online event, please submit a short proposal to email@example.com with the following details:
- Your name, e-mail address, home location (e.g. city, state/province, country), and affiliation of some kind.
- A short title for your piece.
- And 3 to 5 sentences describing your concept and format. (This should include information on whether you will be requiring a screen-share for any video or other material, or if you will simply be appearing or presenting from your webcam. Please consider what you want to convey and how you will do that.)
Proposals are due by April 15, 6 pm EDT. Entries are sought that address the theme in creative and provocative ways using visual, literary, and/or performative means. Presenters should be free to present between 12:00 and 1:30 pm EDT on April 22, via their own webcam and a reasonable internet connection. Presentations should be no longer than 3 minutes in duration.
