Letters to the Earth

6.30-8.30pm. Free, booking recommended.

Artsadmin is hosting an event for Letters To The Earth in partnership with Bernadette Russell.

“We are facing an unprecedented global emergency, the planet is in crisis and we are in the midst of a mass extinction event. Scientists believe we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. Carbon emissions and temperatures keep rising; ecological collapse has begun. On this course we are likely to see abrupt and irreversible devastation. The time for denial is over – we know the truth about climate change. It is time to act.

This is an invitation to write a letter of response to this crisis. This could be a letter to or from the Earth, future or past generations, those who hold positions of power and influence, other species. All submitted letters will be released for presentation on one day of joint action on Friday 12 April across theatres, arts venues and community spaces nationwide.”

Letters to the Earth is one of the first Culture Declares Emergency initiatives and events are taking place in theatres and arts venues across the country.

At Toynbee Studios, we’ll select a few of the submitted letters to be presented, or you can join us to write your own letter on the night, participate in the conversation about climate collapse, plant a seed or pledge another kind of action.
