Teen Night: Whispers de la Tierra

Friday, May 15, 2020

5–7:30 pm

Online

Join us on Zoom as Teen Night, our monthly teen-led program on art and activism, goes virtual! This month, our exciting lineup highlights issues of climate justice and immigrant and Indigenous rights, inspired by Climate in Crisis: Environmental Change in the Indigenous Americas and Jeffrey Gibson: When Fire Is Applied to a Stone It Cracks.

  • 5–5:05 pm Welcome and Keynote: Settle in for the evening with a keynote message from climate justice organizer, and former BkM Teen, Vic Barrett.
  • 5:05–5:25 pm Pop-Up Talks: Catch short talks by our Museum Apprentices about artworks connected to Indigenous worldviews.
  • 5:25–5:35 pm Artist Marketplace: Connect with Indigenous art-makers and learn how you can support their work.
  • 5:35–6:20 pm Panel Discussion: “Navigating the Layers of Climate Justice”: Activists Thanu Yakupitiyage, Xiye Bastida, and Helena Gualinga equip teens with resources to combat climate injustice during the COVID-19 pandemic, offer tips on how to stay engaged at home, and discuss how to minimize our impact on the Earth going forward. Moderated by BkM Teens.
  • 6:20–7:30 pm Music: Close out the evening with performances by poets Dena Igusti and Sonali Sharma, musicians STEFA*, Ernest Brockenberry, Xiuhtezcatl, and Renata Flores, DJ InO, and more!

This program is free and open to all teens globally. Join us on Zoom, and follow #bkmteens on Facebook and Instagram for more details.

Whispers de la Tierra is organized by the Teen Night Planning Committee, our paid teen internship in public programming.
