Stormwash: Climate Awareness Program

Stormwash is an inter-arts program presented by the Arts Alliance of Greater Bloomington, Artists for Climate Awareness, the Writers Guild at Bloomington, Windfall Dancers, Inc., and Julian Douglas.

Climate conscious poems will be performed as spoken word with expressive dance accompaniment, and percussionist Julian Douglas will provide musical interludes.

In the forthcoming Stormwash: Environmental Poems anthology (The Grind Stone, April 2024), 40 poets address the climate crisis and its various effects. From the editor’s Foreword:

“Invariably, these poems suggest an uncanny attunement with nature: Something in the air, a shift in carbon molecules foreshadowing an ominous onslaught, an accumulating avalanche, some kind of storm—the stink of destruction. In either case, these poems enable us to hope that the survival of future generations is not so tenuous after all.”

–Hiromi Yoshida

Stormwash poets include: K Ann Sea, Jonathan S Baker, Zilia Balkansky-Sellés, Jeffrey Bean, Walter Biskupski, Josh A. Brewer, Michael Brockley, Mary Brown, James Dorr, Dina Elenbogen, Marjie Gates Giffin, Jenny Anderson Kalahar, David Keppel, Joseph Kerschbaum, David Alec Knight, Nate Logan, Antonia Matthew, Snow Mathews, Lylanne Musselman, Linda Neal Reising, Jessica Reed, April Ridge, Peggy Squires, Nick ‘Frick’ Wentzel

Performances will be staged in a gallery space where the exhibition “Depictions: Earth, Life, and Our Shared Responsibility,” presented by Artists for Climate Change, will be viewable 4/3 – 4/28.
