Earth Celebrations, founded by social action artist Felicia Young in 1991 in New York City, engages communities to effect ecological and social change through the arts. Earth Celebrations’ programs address and generate change on issues such as climate change, river restoration, species, and habitat conservation, waste management, and the preservation of community gardens, parks, and a healthy urban environment. Founder/Executive Director Felicia Young has developed a successful methodology of ‘social practice’, utilizing the arts, along with civic engagement and environmental action.
They are currently seeking volunteers to become a climate solution, volunteers will wear a spectacular costume, celebrating climate resiliency and ecological sustainability solutions, bringing together climate resiliency and ecological sustainability initiatives throughout the community gardens, neighborhood. They are also seeking volunteers to photograph and document the spectacular Earth Celebrations-Ecological and Social Change through the Arts. These opportunities are to participate in Earth Celebrations' Ecological City: Procession for Climate Solutions.
