The Third Annual LUNGS Harvest Arts Festival 2014 is taking place in more than 30 community gardens on the Lower East Side on Saturday, September 20 & Sunday, September 21. This year, the Festival coincides with the People’s Climate March. In support of the March, many gardens will host workshops and teach-ins on a wide range of environmental issues.
LUNGS is working closely with Converge for Climate to coordinate our own homegrown workshops and theirs. The NYC Climate Convergence is a weekend packed with skill-shares, teach-ins, speak-outs and protests from September 19 to 21 in conjunction with the People’s Climate March.
The gardens will also host fabulous performances in music, dance, theater, spoken word, on site visual artists, and more. One of the highlights of this year’s Festival is a performance by Bread and Puppet Theater of their new piece “Anti Tar Sands Manifesto Pageant”.
On Sunday, the Festival gets on its feet as gardeners and friends join the People’s Climate March en masse.
