Please join us for Climate and Actions: Storytelling with Saris. Exhibition dates: May 8 to June 6, 2015. This cumulative exhibition of saris and prints on paper evolves as participants create art on saris pledging to reduce carbon footprint.

Opening reception and workshop: May 8, 6 -8 pm.

Participants will write and print on saris their personal stories and pledges to reduce carbon footprint. The saris will be added to the exhibition during the course of the show. The workshops will culminate in a public performance in fall 2015 using the pledge saris, which will later be returned to Bangladesh to be worn by coastal women.

Workshop dates: Thursdays May 14 and 21, 11 am to 1 pm and Saturdays May 23, May 30, and June 6 from 11 am to 2 pm.

The project and exhibition are funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities​, which is partially supported by the National Endowment on the Arts.
