The Crossroads Project

Filed under Cultural, Events on February 16, 2016.

The Crossroads Project, coming to First United Methodist Church in Gainesville February 23 at 6 p.m., is a partnership between science and art that aims to blend performance art with one of the great conversation of our time — human civilization’s growing unsustainability and the quest for truly meaningful response. Blending compelling and poetic science, evocative imagery and powerful music, Rising Tide unfolds in a series of vignettes exploring both natural and human systems, and juxtaposing two very different paradigms. The result is an inspiring and deeply personal contemplation of the paths before us. A Q&A session will follow the performance. The event is free and open to the public but tickets are required. Tickets can be reserved through www.eventbrite.com. The Gainesville performance is supported by the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs; Frank 2016; UF Center for Adaptive Innovation, Resilience, Ethics & Science; UF Center for the Humanities and the Pubic Sphere; UF College of the Arts; UF College of Journalism and Communications; UF Department of Biology; UF IFAS; UF Office of Sustainability; and UF Student Government.
