About this Event

About Change From Within - Diversifying the Environmental Movement:

Change from Within is a cross-disciplinary research project that explores the lack of diversity in the environmental field and solutions for improvement. The piece was originally created as a live performance but will be premiering as a dance film for the very first time! In the piece Seattle researcher and choreographer, Jasmmine Ramgotra, creates a movement-based representation of interviews she conducted with leaders of Seattle’s environmental community over 9 months, including individuals in government, NGO’s, business, and academia. Using the interview audio as a sound score created in collaboration with local composer Eli Hetrik, and 9 dancers to communicate the message, the film premiere presents clear takeaways about how to create equitable change on an individual and institutional level. The screening will be followed by an audience and collaborator workshop to reflect on the piece collectively, focusing on our dissonances, insight, and collective inspirations.

About the Symposium:

Addressing inequity and working toward environmental justice is essential to a successful environmental movement. Currently, there are significant disparities in the representation, content, and processes for implementing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within the environmental field across the Salish Sea and the Pacific Northwest Coast.

Although professionals in this field are aware and concerned about issues related to DEI, there is an overall lack of understanding for how to integrate these concepts into the environmental workforce. Addressing inequity and working toward environmental justice is essential to a successful environmental movement.

The 2019 Salish Sea Equity and Justice Symposium aims to center historically underrepresented and marginalized voices within the environmental field in the Salish Sea and Pacific Northwest Coast Region, while creating space for ongoing dialogues related to equity and justice issues within the environmental field.
