About the event

Everyone deserves a healthy environment and access to the outdoors.

Research demonstrates that clean air, water, and access to the outdoors are vital to human health. So if nature is a necessity for everyone’s health and well-being, why is it so hard for some people to access it?  What are the consequences?

The vital connections between health, equity, and nature are increasingly visible across the United States. Throughout this 90-minute performance, audiences will watch and listen to the lived experiences of members of communities affected by environmental racism and health inequities and their interconnections through music, illustration, and videography.

Convergence: Health Equity in a Changing Climate is a collaboration between Black Moon Trio and Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods and features two commissioned compositions from composers Marc Mellits and Jerod Impichchaachaaha' Tate as well as original artwork from five visual artists across the country to emphasize the data collected from Brushwood Center’s Health, Equity, and Nature Accelerator Report.
