An intersectional event for participants to share different cultural traditions and knowledge about environmentalism.
What is the future of the lunar calendar when creatures like the tiger are at risk of extinction? How will we find an imaginative solution in migrant communities where creativity is actively discouraged?
This event is an invitation to reflect on the complicated intersections many of us experience in Asian communities: how Lunar New Year can be a time to celebrate and grieve the tiger while sharing cultural stories we are proud to inherit and embrace collective creativity to feel connected.
Rosie Pham is interested in climate action that delves deeper into our own connections with culture, community, and country. Having completed her Masters of Environment, Rosie hoped for an office job in sustainability, only to find events and facilitating are where her heart lies. By day she supports amazing women as a virtual and research assistant. By night she explores ecopsychology and dreams up ways to bring people together over events that bring back the lost art of honest conversations. She is so grateful to have learned nothing can stop you from feeling deeply connected to strangers – even during a pandemic via zoom – and is passionate to share this so that we may all plug into this transformative energy and work together.
