Music and Ecology: An Evening of Performance and Discussion

Environmental scientists and ecological artists are attuned to many of the intricacies of the present environmental crisis. They are simultaneously witnessing overwhelming loss, working on prevention and imagining ecstatic possibilities for a future that celebrates the gifts of the natural world.  This event is a collaborative platform for these unique perspectives, exploring curiosities between the magical and the practical within landscape.

Please join us for this event that aims to bring people together to learn from, awaken, and influence one another. Throughout the evening there will be performances by musicians working at the intersection of sound, the arts, and ecology. A panel discussion exploring collaborative opportunity and possibility will be at the center of the eve, featuring several of the night’s performers in conversation with ecological restoration practitioners, scientists and artists.

Musical performances by Cheryl Leonard, Jorge Bachmann, The Dutton/Nishi-Smith/Otte Trio, and Secret Drum Band. Panelists include artist and BOATRIGHT Elise Brewster, ecologist Ed West, the San Francisco Estuary’s cartographer Ruth Askevold, and conservation biologist Dr. Claire Kremen.

At Pro Arts Gallery in Oakland, CA. Performances begin at 6:30; Panelist Discussion at 7:45
