Please join us at the Black Box Theatre of the Anacostia Arts Center for a screening of the performance film from Change Is Coming, a performance on the Anacostia River with the women of Calvary Women’s Services, who have been involved with the Storytelling with Saris project since 2015. The film is 20 minutes in duration and we will be screening it several times from 3:30 to 6:00 pm, so please pop in even if you are late. We will also be making a collaborative climate pledge sari with woodblock and writing. Filmmakers Monica Jahan Bose and Leena Jayaswal will be present.

We will also have a book signing for the new book, Rising Up to Climate Change: Storytelling with Saris, which is available for $20.

The public screening will be preceded by a private screening and discussion with the women of Calvary (2:30 to 3:30 pm).

Many thanks to Camille Kashaka and the Anacostia Arts Center for making this event possible and for hosting the 2015 show “Climate and Actions.” This film, performance and screening are supported by a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
