Update from Rebecca Schultz regarding the project’s future during the COVID-19 pandemic:
“The physical closeness that is needed to create an ensemble performance piece is not possible right now, but the need to connect in whatever ways we can, and reflect on our relationship with nature, is more important than ever. I recently contributed a short story to the Artists and Climate Change blog
about just that.
So, starting April 1st, I am launching a new version of this project which will unfold on social media, that everyone is invited to participate in, regardless of geographic location and gender identity. To get involved, please follow the project blog, as well my Instagram feed and Facebook page.
Rebecca Schultz is leading a participatory, multi-disciplinary environmental art project in Elkins Park this spring. “Women’s Responses to the Ecological Crisis: A Performative Ritual” will engage self-identified women (non-binary and genderqueer folx also welcome) in Cheltenham, Jenkintown, East and West Oak Lanes in a creation process resulting in a site-specific performance and installation at High School Park and the Elkins Park Train Station in May 2020. The piece will use performative actions and visual metaphor to explore personal actions to build a more just and sustainable world. Interested participants are encouraged to attend an information session on February 22nd or March 11th to find out more about the project.
