Part 1: Sunday, May 2 at 11:30 am – Greg Dalton, radio & podcast host and founder of the Commonwealth Club’s Climate One, will give a brief update on current Climate One events and reflect on his conversation with internationally renowned artist Ai WeiWei several years ago. Clips of that event will kick off our Q&A session with Greg.
Part 2: Sunday, May 16 at 11:30 am – Former Lines Ballet dancer & Ballet Master and landscape-embedded artist Meredith Webster will join us for a discussion of how our bodies and the way we use them express and affect our connection to the earth. Meredith will speak briefly on her relationship to environmental issues with a Q&A session afterwards. This program will include showing of the moving, five-minute dance film Meredith created during a month-long residency at the Jackson (WY) Art Center and the words she wrote to accompany that piece.
