E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower*, renowned musician, composer,

Boston* will include community led activities surrounding the belief 
systems and interrelated social issues that impact climate justice and

During her time at ArtsEmerson she will work with a team of artists, 
cross-sector activists, and non-profit and municipal administrators to 
engage communities in efforts to bring greater visibility to the 
impending sociological outcomes of climate change and the need to 
increase our methods of survival.

    “My idea was that this work would gather folks interested in not
    having a diabolical existence on earth.”
