Proposed Key Action

- OR Spring 2021. We are open to exploring all possibilities.

- Theater: Chantal Bilodeau and ”Artists and Climate Change” are potential participants
- Music: Potential performances include events like “World Music Against Climate Change” which took place in Boston on December 7 AND Leslie Steinweiss’ composition: “An Elegy for an Ailing Planet.” ALSO opportunity to engage YOUNG musicians.
- Dance: Explore possibilities with Sarah Slifer Swift of MAGMA
