Earth Day Extravaganza Saturday

An Earth Day Extravaganza with performers in spoken word, music, visual arts and a live dance band happens Saturday night at TRU.

The Awakening the Dreamer: Changing the Dream symposium taking place at Thompson Rivers University during the day on Saturday, April 21 will be followed in the evening with an Earth Day Extravaganza at TRU from 6 to 11 p.m. featuring local performers in spoken word, music, visual arts, and a live dance band.

The entry fee is $10 and children under 15 get in free.

Drum and Bell Tower is featured at 8 p.m.

Food vendors will be on site during the day and evening.

For more information on the Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Symposium and community sustainability forum at TRU Saturday go to www.changingthedream.ca.

“The symposium confronts the current state of the world, examines how we got here and most importantly looks at possible futures and how we can begin to work to create a sustainable and socially just future,” says Jay Goddard, one of the event organizers. “To be sure, the film and discussion presents a frank and realistic picture of the current state of the world.”

Participants will be invited to learn more about how they can become involved in supporting local initiatives, learn to be green consumers, create greater awareness, influence decision makers and feel empowered to begin to work towards change.

For more information contact Jay Goddard, jgoddard@tru.ca or Lisa Bland,  lisa@changingthedream.ca.

 

The event has a website as well: www.changingthedream.ca.
