Conserving nature and tapping into human creativity may not immediately appear to be connected. But on Thursday, June 24, at 6 p.m., Southampton Arts Center will host an evening of inspiring discussion with Safina Center founding president Dr. Carl Safina, photographer and educator Patricia Paladines, award-winning writer Paul Greenberg, and writer and artist Erica Cirino.
The panelists will discuss inspiration, conservation, preservation of both nature and human communities, and more. Safina and Greenberg will be signing copies of their books. Attendees are invited to bring their own or purchase one onsite from Canio’s Books.
“I can think of no conversation more timely than that of the connection between human nature and the natural world, and no team more inspiring to lead us in this most important dialogue, said SAC curatorial associate Daniela Kronemeyer. “Over the years, the Safina Center has succeeded in bringing together a diverse network of environmentalists from around the world to combat the climate crisis, and SAC stands in support of all they are doing for all life on Earth. Please join us for this thought-provoking and inspiring program to learn more about how each one of us can contribute to living more in harmony with the natural world.”
This program is part of “EARTH: Artists as Activists” which is on view at SAC through July 10. The intention of this exhibition is to creatively confront the threats to the environment, bringing forth a collective effort to inspire action.
This talk is free and attendees should bring their own beach chair or blanket for this outdoor event. Registration is required at southamptonartscenter.org. The Southampton Arts Center is at 25 Jobs Lane in Southampton Village.
