Changing the Narrative: Climate Stories for Justice is a five-run show at the Minnesota Fringe Festival (Aug 4-14, 2022), produced by Jothsna Harris of Change Narrative. The show is an evocative experience of the senses intended to connect both the head and heart on climate change and spur action on this critical issue of our time. Hosted by Emcee Rasheed Harris, this production features live, spoken narratives by Twin Cities-based climate justice organizers interspersed with graphic illustration, music, and poetry. Featured storytellers include Whitney Terrill (Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light), Nicole Ektnitphong (Climate Advocacy Lab), and Leslee Gutiérrez Carrillo (COPAL); visual imagery by illustrator Lisa Troutman of Drawn Well and music by songwriters/poets Strong Buffalo and Ben Weaver (known together as the musical duo Buffalo Weavers).
The Changing the Narrative: Climate Stories for Justice program is supported in part by Oyate Hotanin as part of the recently-announced, ongoing series Society of Mother Earth (S.O.M.E.)—a collaboration between Change Narrative, Oyate Hotanin, and Buffalo Weavers.
