Aviva Rhamani Virtual Feminism and Environmental Triage, a “Gulf to Gulf” webcast
PARMER 464 Quincy Street, Brooklyn NY 11221

Surviving climate change requires rapidly shifting our values. Women are often environmental first responders because they often tend food and water supplies. #YesAllWomen demonstrated how this can quickly shift international discourse. Can similar methodologies triage our present environmental crisis? Could a mobilized virtual community of savvy Feminists save the world? Artworkers Amanda Parmer from NYC, Eugenio Tiselli from Mexico, Mark Staff Brandl from Zurich with Aviva Rahmani from NYC and Maine, try to answer. Due to limited space, only the first 100 callers may attend. The recording will then be available on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/user4960423/groups
