Zoom Meeting to be Held on Sustaining Louisiana through Coastal Impact
Louisiana’s land loss is already impacting coastal communities and it will eventually affect all of us throughout the state. The arts can play a vital role in helping communities adapt to the changes and help everyone understand that this is a statewide issue. Artists and cultural leaders need to be part of the conversation.
Monique Verdin will share her experience as an artist relocating after Hurricane Katrina. Maida Owens will explore how sea level rise is affecting us and share projections about the population shifts that have already started in addition to what the Bayou Culture Collaborative is doing to help sustain Louisiana’s traditional cultures. Arts administrator Dr. Sharbreon Plummer will explore issues that people of color consider when relocating. Camille Manning-Broome, President and CEO of Center for Planning Excellence, will speak about climate adaptation strategies and getting communities prepared for the population migration happening across Louisiana. Kelsea McCrary and Maida Owens will lead a discussion.
We hope you will join us for this first in a series of collaborations addressing how the arts can be part of the solution as Louisiana copes with migration due to land loss. And please share this invitation with others concerned about the future of our cultures.
To register, go to EventBrite – Climate Change, Migration, and Sustaining Our Culture. Please answer a few questions here. We will share the results during the workshop. We ask you to consider whether you will stay where you are, relocate, or receive newcomers to your community and how you or your organization might respond.
The Bayou Culture Collaborative supports workshops to sustain the traditional cultures of coastal Louisiana. We support tradition bearers to pass on a tradition in addition to workshops that explore the connections between art, tradition, and science. Sense of Place — and Loss workshops bring together artists, tradition bearers, folklorists, and scientists to inspire advocacy and creativity in the face of land loss and cultural shifts. The project is a collaboration between the Division of the Arts Folklife Program, the Louisiana Folklore Society, other nonprofits, and university centers. For more information, visit www.louisianafolklife.org/bayouculture.
This workshop is presented with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, the Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism.
The free workshop will be held from 3 to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 13, via Zoom.
