Earth Celebrations launches ECOLOGICAL CITY, a community-based arts and environmental action project to celebrate climate resiliency and ecological sustainability solutions throughout the gardens, neighborhood and waterfront on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, connecting local initiatives to city and global climate challenges.
Ecological City Pageant
Saturday May 12, 2018 – 12-6pm
The 6-hour procession of visual art, giant puppets and spectacular costumes with 15 site performances of dance, music, theater and poetry are presented along the route visiting gardens, neighborhood and waterfront sites. The artistic works explore these sites and their myriad climate resiliency and ecological sustainability solutions to mitigate carbon, pollution run-off and flooding due to storm surges and sea level rise, being designed and implemented throughout the neighborhood as an urban model for a sustainable future.
