Salon Discussion: Adams and Maria Wood - Art, Environment, & Family

October 20

RiverArts Salons

A RiverArts Salon is a (virtual) place to learn something new, share ideas, explore interesting topics, see and be seen, and have fun.

Tuesdays from 5 - 5:45, on Zoom

RiverArts and ShoreRivers present #shoreriverarts - October Conversations on Art & the Environment

What do art and environmental stewardship have in common? They are both powerful ways that we work in and for our communities, express shared values, and help build the future we want to inhabit. In October, RiverArts and ShoreRivers will cocurate a special series of Salons exploring how Conservation, Justice, Family, Harmony are essential tools in our response to the crises of climate, coronavirus, and racial injustice, just as they are essential elements for a life of joy and meaning.

Each Tuesday in October from 5 to 5:45 pm, join our organizations at the RiverArts Salon to celebrate the abundance of good works being done. Be inspired, learn something new, and participate in actions that will benefit our rivers and our community.

Tuesday, October 20: RiverArts & ShoreRivers Salon with Adams and Maria Wood - Art, Environment, & Family

Brother and sister team Adams and Maria Wood grew up in, on, and beside the Chester River. Now they are working together on a documentary film and outreach project called Family Tides, a feature documentary media and outreach project that aims to accelerate the conversation about sea level rise and climate change and increase engagement on these issues, starting with their own family.
