People's Climate March - Mayday Space
IdentiferProgram PCM 5
DescriptionOn September 21, 2014, hundreds of thousands of people from around the world gathered in New York City to march for environmental justice and use people's power to pressure world leaders to act against climate change ahead of the UN Climate Summit. In the lead up to the march, Deep Dish TV profiled a diverse group of organizations preparing for the demonstration and having discussions around the devastating impact climate change is already having on communities worldwide as well as the root causes of climate change and how to fight against them.
Here we look at the Mayday Space and the many artists creating banners, signs and mobile installations to be used during the march. We spoke with Queer Migrant, Feminist, Poet, Cultural Organizer and Activist Sonia Guiñansaca about the relationship between art and activism and role of artists in social movements.
