Catastrophe: Dialogues On Storytelling And The Present Moment?Part 2, Climate Change & Sacred Grov
Static Preview

Please join The Commonwealth Club of California and UC Berkeley’s Townsend Center for the Humanities for the second in a series of dialogues on catastrophe, storytelling and the present moment. In “Climate Change and Sacred Groves,” Townsend Center scholar Sugata Ray will meet with visual artist Ranu Mukherjee to investigate the relationship between the natural world and the sacred realm, especially as it has developed in India over the last several centuries of civilization and the rise of the Anthropocene era.

In his most recent book, Climate Change and the Art of Devotion, Sugata shows how a site-specific and ecologically grounded theology emerged in northern India in the wake of the Little Ice Age (ca. 1550–1850), an epoch marked by climatic catastrophes across the globe. His interests dovetail in unexpected and compelling ways with Ranu’s visionary and captivating recent work, which positions the banyan tree as a meeting point between ecology and culture. Their conversation will be an opportunity for viewers to contemplate and rethink the role of art as it relates to contemporary concerns around climate, disease, human flourishing and the sacred.

Sugata Ray is associate professor of South and Southeast Asian art in the History of Art Department at the University of California, Berkeley. His research and writing focus on climate change and the visual arts from the 1500s onward. Ray is the author of Climate Change and the Art of Devotion: Geoaesthetics in the Land of Krishna, 1550–1850 (2019); Water Histories of South Asia: The Materiality of Liquescence (2019; coedited); and Ecologies, Aesthetics, and Histories of Art (forthcoming; coedited).

Ranu Mukherjee is a visual artist who makes paintings, animations and large-scale installations. Her current work focuses on shifting senses of ecology, non-human agency, diaspora, migration and transnational feminist experience. Her most recent installation was presented at the ecologically focused 2019 Karachi Biennale; she has exhibited solo at the San Jose Museum of Art, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Asian Art Museum, and the de Young Museum. She is an associate professor in graduate fine art at the California College of the Arts. Mukherjee is represented by Gallery Wendi Norris.

Cree Elder A.J. Felix at The Turtle Lodge

Cree Elder A.J. Felix speaks and shares a song at the Turtle Lodge Central House of Knowledge - March 19, 2020 | At the ceremonial launching of "Wahbanung - The Resurgence of a People: Clearing the Path for Our Survival"

This song is for sharing:

"Wake up, my Grandson!
Wake up, my Granddaughter!

Your children are hurting.
Wake up!

Your children don’t even know how to pray.
Wake up!

Your grandchildren are not learning good things!
Wake up!

Your people are not even getting along, they don’t even visit each other.
Wake up!

The old people are not looking after each other. They’re not visiting. They’re not acknowledging each other.
Wake up!

Wake up, my Grandson!
Wake up, my Granddaughter!

We’re not sharing anything with each other, we’re stingy.
Wake up!

How can we be blessed? We’re not sharing.
How can we be healthy? We’re not even kin. We’re not even being relative to each other. We’re not even visiting our sisters and our brothers.
Wake up!

You’re not even telling your Mum, “I love you!”
You’re not even telling your Dad, “I love you!”
Wake up!

You’re not practicing your spirituality that the Creator, Lord God, had given you. The humility that you’re supposed to have. You’re not practicing it.
Wake up."

Four Gifts Elder A.J. Felix Gives Away

1. Pray. Not a long prayer, a short prayer. Make it to the point.

2. When you pray, Cry. Mean it. Mean your prayer, which means have tears. If you want it bad enough, you’ll cry. And the spirit world, the whole universe, when you cry, will stop and listen to you.

3. Never go around trying to buy luck. Never go around trying to buy something that will hurt someone else. Don’t go around trying to buy success. You don’t know what you're buying and you don’t know from whom you’re buying. You can hurt your home, you can hurt yourself, you can hurt your family, by buying.

4. Now that you are a praying person, a crying person, watchful of your life and your lifestyle, you’re going to be successful. You’re going to be okay. Your home is going to be alright. You’re not going to have fear, you’re not going to be scared, because you’re doing these first two, three things, and doing them well. The last thing is – now that you’re ok, be humble. Don’t go around boasting because you’re ok. Share your wealth, share your food, share what little you’ve got, with those who really need it bad. And you’ll be ok. You'll be successful.

The Psychology of Climate Change with Robert Frank
Static Preview

After more than three decades, the public is finally beginning to grasp what a serious threat global warming poses. Whats missing from the climate conversation now is a plausible narrative about how we might parry this threat. Drawing on ideas from his recently published book, Under the Influence: Putting Peer Pressure to Work, Robert Frank explains why our ability to tap the prodigious power of behavioral contagion may make the path forward less daunting than many think. Recorded on 1/27/2020. [3/2020] [Show ID: 35561]
Robert H. Frank is the Henrietta Johnson Louis Professor of Management and Professor of Economics at Cornell's Johnson Graduate School of Management. For more than a decade, his "Economic View" column appeared monthly in The New York Times.

A New Era of the Climate Justice Movement by Isha Clarke
Static Preview

This keynote talk was given at the 2019 Bioneers Conference. With Isha Clarke. To build a successful global climate movement, we must prioritize the voices of those most impacted by environmental injustice. We must recognize that our current climate crisis is rooted in racism, white supremacy, and greed. We must also resist efforts to tokenize the term “intersectionality” rather than actually implementing it in our movements and daily lives. What would a movement and a society functioning on a genuine understanding of intersectionality look like? To learn more about Isha Clarke, visit Youth vs. Apocalypse.

Climate Action IS the Social Justice Issue of Our Time by Heather McTeer Toney
Static Preview

This keynote talk was delivered at the 2019 Bioneers Conference.
Introduction by Lisa Hoyos, Director of Climate Parents at the Sierra Club.

For years, “environmentalists” have been typecast as white, tree-hugging vegetarians who care more for whales than southside Chicago or rural Mississippi. But the fact is that not only are poor and vulnerable populations, especially communities of color, environmentally aware, they are the most at risk from the impacts of climate change. Heather McTeer Toney addresses how we must embrace climate action as the social justice issue of our time, and tear down old stereotypes so that we can build sustainable and resilient alliances to fight effectively together and affirm our common humanity. Heather is currently National Field Director of Moms Clean Air Force. Previously she served as the first African American, first female, and youngest-ever mayor of Greenville, Mississippi, and as a prominent leader in the Obama-era EPA.

Why you should be a climate activist | Luisa Neubauer
Static Preview

"I dream of a world where geography classes teach about the climate crisis as this one great challenge that was won by people like you and me," says climate activist Luisa Neubauer. With Greta Thunberg, Neubauer helped initiate "Fridays For Future," the momentous international school strike movement that protests the lack of action on the climate crisis. She shares four first steps that anyone, regardless of age, can take to become a climate activist. "This is not a job for a single generation. This is a job for humanity," she says.
