WATER RIGHTS: AND NOW THE HOW
VENUE: THE PLAYTRAIL AMPHITHEATRE
Performer/Artist: Ikidowin Youth Theatre Ensemble, accompanied by Water Walk elder Sharon Day
Join us as we explore what's next in the Rights of Nature movement in Ireland. We'll kick off with an artistic contribution from the Ikidowin Youth Theatre Ensemble before delving into how we can realise the Rights of Nature in specific cases across the island. How could Lough Neagh own itself? How could the Foyle flow pollution free? Discuss!
6.30pm: registration and pizza
ARTITUDE CLIMATE FESTIVAL
A free three day community-led celebration of art, climate action and the circular economy.
Showcasing creative, community-led responses to the climate emergency, the festival is delivered in collaboration with The Gathering, Zero Waste North West (ZWNW), Northern Ireland Resources Network (NIRN), Environmental Justice Network Ireland (EJNI) Friends of the Earth NI and Making Relatives - a visit of water and land protectors from Lakota Nation, US.
Emerging from The Playhouse's Artitude: Climate, Culture and Circularity project, the festival is part of a unique and transformational programme of activity, using the arts and creative practice to engage communities in the DCSDC area in exploring climate action and the circular economy, with a view to encouraging positive behavioural change.
The Playhouse works with partners Zero Waste North West, Northern Ireland Resources Network, Queens University and Derry City and Strabane District Council to use the arts to co-ordinate and deliver the 18 month programme.
