Ecological City is a creative collaboration of over 50 community partner groups, gardeners, artists, youth and residents co-creating a theatrical pageant to explore climate solutions and ecological sustainability initiatives throughout the community gardens, neighborhood and East River waterfront on the Lower East Side of New York City. Many months of arts workshops culminated in the 6-hour procession of visual art, giant puppets and costumes with 20-site performances of dance, music, theater and poetry celebrating the impressive local ecosystem of sustainability and its important contribution to city and global climate challenges.
