EcoCultureLab at the University of Vermont is seeking presenters for its upcoming Earth Day webinar, “When Corona Met Climate Change… What Changed?

The event will take place on April 22, 2020, at 12 pm Eastern, and will entail a series of live, short (under 3 minutes), and creative responses to the intersection of coronavirus and climate change. It aims to share ’emotional weather reports’ and creative visions of how to get from where we are now to a future ‘ecotopian’ world.

If you are interested in presenting via webcam at this online event, submit a short proposal to ecoculture@uvm.edu with the following details:

Your name, e-mail address, home location (e.g. city, state/province, country), and an affiliation of some kind;

A short title for your piece;

3 to 5 sentences describing your concept and format. 

Proposals are due by April 15, 6 pm EDT. Entries are sought that address the theme in creative and provocative ways using visual, literary, and/or performative means. Presenters should be free to present between 12:00 and 1:30 pm EDT on April 22, via their own webcam and a reasonable internet connection. Presentations should be no longer than 3 minutes in duration.
