OPEN hosts Q&A on Climate Change and Migration with Creative Team of Caravan Stage Company
Nomadic Tempest Q&A – A Take on Climate Change and Migration through Art and Dialogue
OPEN serves as host for an enlightening conversation about climate change and its impact on people with the founder of Caravan Stage Company, Paul Kirby. Mr. Kirby joins members of the University of South Florida to explore the intersection between art and the social issues of climate and migration. These themes are presented dramatically in Caravan’s Nomadic Tempest – a stage production incorporating opera, acrobatics and drama that is set upon the company’s ship/stage, the Amara Zee.
Joining Mr. Kirby on this panel are Dr. David Randle, Director of the Patel College of Global Sustainability and Dr. Ella Schmidt, Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of South Florida. The panel is moderated by Fanni Green, Professor of Theater and Dance USF.
OPEN and its partner Et Cultura collaborated on this event to ensure that the ideas and insights of this event are shared and accessible throughout the St. Petersburg community – capturing this event in video making it available via OPEN for further reference.
