“Change from Within” Racial Ecologies Conference – June 1-2

CHANGE FROM WITHIN: DIVERSIFYING THE ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENT
We are delighted to announce Change from Within, the culmination of Jasmmine Ramgotra‘s Environmental Studies capstone internship with the Center for Creative Conservation. Change from Within explores the lack of diversity in the environmental field and solutions for improvement in the cross-disciplinary format of contemporary dance. Jasmmine creates a movement-based representation of her interviews with leaders of Seattle’s environmental community. Using the interview audio as a sound score, and four dancers to communicate the message, the performance presents clear takeaways about how to create positive change on an individual level.

This performance will be followed by an audience and collaborator discussion.
