The Chrysalis Project: Transforming Together

A collaborative Art in Action project to create a positive vision for our future and call for strong climate action. 

We will utilize the tools that we have in our homes, our creativity, and the power voices to call for climate justice. In this time of uncertainty, we come together to create a new vision of a climate friendly community, while raising our voices for our future. As we shelter-in-place we will work in solidarity with our neighbors to create art and call upon local governments to take strong climate action.

We recognize that this time is hard for so many people. Let us take this moment to imagine and take action towards a life sustaining future for our families, communities, and grandchildren.
