In June 2013, 350VT hosted the first annual Climate Cabaret on the State House lawn in Montpelier. The event showcased various performances including acrobatics, puppets, skits, poetry, and dances all with the underlying theme of the urgent nature of climate change. Through these performances, with the backdrop of the State House, we aimed to foster the kind of community needed to carry forth this movement in creative ways without losing sight of the practical and political solutions necessary to win this fight. In addition to this performances that took place, a visual art gallery was set up in the Goddard Art Gallery featuring pieces from local artists that highlight the impacts of climate change. As we move forth into the new year and new challenges come our way, we will be planning our 2nd Climate Cabaret for 2014. We hope you will consider participating, organizing, or at least attending. Date and location are to be determined.
