The Creative Arts Contribution to the Environmental Movement



Shadowcliff board member, Mary Silwance, featured this week on KKFI Kansas City Community Radio’s EcoRadio
(Note: the interview begins at about the 7 min mark of the recording)


Facing the twin existential threats of the human-induced Sixth Mass Extinction of Species and global warming, humanity increasingly recognizes the necessity for transformations.  Beyond all the science, models, and policy proposals, the environmental movement must embrace the creative arts as gateways to the provision of depth and meaning to these transformations.


To affirm, discuss, and share a few contributions of the creative arts, with an emphasis on drama and poetry, Eco-Radio host Dave Mitchell will interview Gary Heisserer, President of the Artistic Committee for the KC Actors Theatre, and Mary Silwance, a longtime Kansas City environmental activist, writer, poet, and member of the editorial team for Kansas City Voices.  (Mary’s blog)
