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
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.
Tim Trumbauer is your Chester Riverkeeper, a tireless advocate pursuing a vision of clean water to sustain the Eastern Shore and the people who live here. Darran White Tilghman, ShoreRivers' newly appointed Director of Community Engagement, supports Tim and the other Riverkeepers in creating an inclusive, empathetic organization that can achieve lasting change. Tim and Darran led an inspiring and encouraging conversation about environmental justice and building the future we hope to inhabit—including how you can help.
Some key points included:
the movement to preserve the environment will be seen to be… not a digression from the civil rights and peace movements, but the logical culmination of those movements.
