Rise Up! multimedia performances: sea levels and community resilience

Tue, 04/26/2022 - 8:45pm

    On May 13, 14 and 15, Halcyon String Quartet will present Rise Up! - a series of multimedia performances in North Haven, Rockland, and Vinalhaven.

    Using a combination of live music and projected film, Rise Up! reflects on the impacts of sea level rise on the communities and coastlines of Vinalhaven, North Haven, and Rockland. The performances encourage reflection and action, inspire empathy, and call on people of all ages to think deeply about the opportunities for resilience and action within the communities.

    Rise Up! features live music by Halcyon String Quartet, film by video artist Luke Fatora, and artist Jill Pelto’s watercolor painting “Rising Mitigation.”

    Each performance will be followed by a panel discussion with the musicians, artists, and special guests including Hannah Pingree, Gabe McPhail, Anna Siegel, Riley Stevenson, and members of the Vinalhaven Sea Level Rise Committee. P

    Performances will take place at:

    Waterman’s Community Center on North Haven on Friday, May 13, at 7 p.m.;
