PeaceSmiths April 16th: How-To Save The Earth

For community members who come to give their 2 cents worth, PeaceSmiths will give it back to them with this very special forum event. Anyone who would like may bring a two minute presentation, newspaper clipping, poem, treatise, or plan on the topic of the evening. The theme is “How-To Save the Earth in Two Minutes”, including issues on the environment, anti-nuclear activism, and addressing global warming.

Huntington artist Gary Ivan, will be the Master of Ceremonies, and will also sketch the proceedings. The event will be taped by a Public Access Producer for possible broadcast on television and on-line video. Each presentation by an audience member will be responded to by a panel of activist artists.

For the last How-To Forum, audience presentations included a speech on how to “Get over it” in order to end the war, and a song about economic justice. For their part, the artists panel wound up producing several poems, a skit about Bernie Madoff, and songs on such topics as peace in the world and Mimetic Theory.

Everyone who attends these How-To Forums is welcome to do a two minute presentation. Though, people may come simply to watch or to cheer on their friends.

More information can be found at the PeaceSmiths Hotline: (631) 798-0778.
