Create Harmony: Earth Day Celebration

Apr 21, 12 pm

Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light invites you to Create Harmony: Earth Day Celebration!

When we join together, we create harmony. Join us for a day of community, celebration, and action. Together we’ll envision and experience the world we are working for, one that is just, equitable, and sustainable, where everyone’s needs are fully and fairly met, and create a music video to share our message far and wide—you don’t want to miss it!

Movement, Music, Inspired Action

Join us for all or part of the day:

Lunch Buffet, Noon
Gandhi Mahal Restaurant- Minneapolis MN will serve us a delicious Bangladeshi/Indian buffet lunch following the cleanup. There will be time to mingle and learn from our partners for social and environmental justice, make some art, and hang out before the 2:00 pm main event.

Create Harmony, 2:00 pm
We know the world we want, so let’s spread our message loud and clear! Through music, movement, and spoken word we’ll create a music video to inspire others to take action. Join us for an afternoon including spoken word performances by youth leaders, music from John Bell, all the way from Scotland will lead us in a “Big Sing” for social and environmental justice. Movement facilitator Nicola Kapala will get us moving and integrating our hearts and bodies. We’ll conclude our celebration with a procession on the lawn to bring music, movement and art into the world!
