Workshop: House of Trees, Word on the Street

Studios, Lower Level

House of Trees (HOT) invite everyone to Word On The Street, where participants are invited bring their thoughts, ideas and demands related to climate action to life in the form of colorful felt banners, capes and other wearables that they can then take out onto the streets during UN Climate Week. Word on the Street engages the community in social action and encourages a physical artistic response to current political issues surrounding ranging from equality and freedom of speech to social justice and climate change.

Word on the Street is presented as part of Our Future Festival NYC, a daylong festival of events on Governors Island as part of Climate Week NYC 2019 and the UN Climate Action Summit 2019.

The festival will feature informative talks and discussions by climate leaders, creative and fun workshops that spark curiosity and inspire belonging as it relates to our shared urban environment, climate-themed dance and theatrical performances, and much more. In addition, multiple organizations representing activism, the energy sector and climate education and communications will be stationed in Nolan Park throughout the day. And a series of guided tours and interactive walks will allow visitors the chance to explore and learn about Governors Island, from its urban farm to resilient new park, through the lens of climate change.
