Starting Sunday April 25th and lasting through October, the regions biggest public art project will begin to take shape. By Mid-May “Summer of Color” will have turned 158 lifeguard towers on 31 miles of California coast into vibrant floral pieces of public art. On Sunday, volunteers will paint tower railings with one of five colors: yellow, rumba orange, sweat pea, Toronto blue, and crocus petal purple. If you want to volunteer, sign up here.
From 7 – 18 December, representatives from 192 nations, as well as thousands of activists and NGO organisations, will gather in Denmark for the UN Climate Change Conference.
To help solve the problem of over-booked hotel accommodation, NEW LIFE COPENHAGEN is running a volunteer-based campaign to get private Danish homes to open their door to the visitors.
NEW LIFE COPENHAGEN is organised by the arts collective Wooloo.org, who are utilizing this large-scale human meeting as its exhibition platform. Artists and performers will be presenting events, happenings and performances as part of their ‘residencies’, for hosts and guests in Copenhagen.
The artists curated by Wooloo.org will develop projects that reflect a new, sustainable way of life, works that are experiments in civic engagement and social empowerment.
NEW LIFE COPENHAGEN is an official partner of both the UN Climate Summit and the Alternative Climate Summit. Friends of the Earth and WWF are co-partners.
