Awakening a Culture of Conservation
ArtCorps and Ecologic Development Fund invite you to join us for a spectacular visual journey and learn about how we are working together to protect natural resources and Mayan culture in Totonicapan, Guatemala.
Pick up a copy of Wisdom of the Rocky Hillsides, a collection of stories from K’iche’ Maya oral tradition illustrated by our Young Leaders in Conservation.
Take a spectacular journey through the photography of ArtCorps Artist Isabel Carrió to witness community efforts to preserve the environmental and cultural heritage of the Guatemalan highlands. Learn more about the ArtCorps-EcoLogic creative collaboration.
You will also have the opportunity to participate in a community art activity with ArtCorps Alumnae Andrea Shigeko Landin, win door prizes such as delicious Taza chocolate sustainably sourced from Central America or a $100 gift certificate to Ole Mexican Grill in Cambridge, and sign up with Renew Boston for a free home energy assessment.
Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. All ages welcome. We hope to see you on May 16th!
Photo exhibit made possible thanks to generous support from The Finer Image in Danvers.
When & Where
Creative Action Institute
Creativity powers people, and people working together power change.
Creative Action Institute (home of ArtCorps) works at the intersection of creativity and social change. We build the capacity of leaders and organizations for innovation, collaboration and resilience to advance conservation, health and human rights globally. We seek an inclusive and just world where individuals, communities and ecosystems flourish.
Our programs serve as the foundation to build grassroots networks, widen scope and deepen impact. We've compiled our best practices gained from a decade in the field into a dynamic, hands-on curriculum that we now offer to educators, advocates and organizations to better realize their missions.
ArtCorps will return to its roots as the community engagement program within CAI - artists directly supporting initiatives in the field with short term, high impact arts based projects.
From sowing trust and motivation among disengaged groups to achieving meaningful dialogue on divisive topics, we empower social change makers and the communities they serve to crack open complex challenges and build a network to pass on the knowledge gained in the field.
Reimagine Social Change.
