Rebellion: A Climate Change Protest Sign-Making Workshop

June 15, 2019

When: Saturday June 15, 6pm
Where: Fabarnak, 519 Church St.

NUIT ROSE is a free, annual, late night festival of queer art and performance, showcasing provocative, contemporary work by local and international artists. This year, we are pleased to work in participation with NUIT ROSE to present REBELLION, a Climate Change protest sign-making workshop led by artist and activist Amrita Singh. This FREE interactive project aims to bring awareness of climate change and encourages diverse narratives in environmental activism.

Where does environmental degradation occur? Is it in the shrinking of the Amazon rainforest over 5000km from Toronto? Or the melting polar ice caps roughly 15,000km away? While climate change may seem to have little local relevance, immediate action is required by all to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions and mitigate the threat of climate change. Numerous reports from environmental watchdogs warn that if mitigation does not occur and a ‘hothouse’ state is reached, the effects of climate change will likely be irreversible.

Sponsored in part by The Centre for Social Justice.
