Our theme this year for UNFIX NYC 2024 is "Disturbance." Disruptions to our social and ecological systems can have profound effects, from the catastrophic to the regenerative. How have disturbances affected your life and your relationship with your community and the natural environment? Can we be sensitive to disturbance and also resilient in response?
We would love to hear from you about your work. We look forward to learning about your thoughts & passion!
About UNFIX NYC
The UNFIX NYC festival aims to raise ecological awareness through arts. UNFIX NYC seeks to address Ecological crisis and renewal through our Bodies, Minds & Souls: dance, theatre, performance, music, film, visual arts, panel discussions, and other arts forms.
What is 'ecology'? Ecology is the study of all living beings on this planet and their relationships with each other and with the physical environment. In this festival, we broaden the definition of ecology to include how we can live embedded within ecological systems in a way that supports those systems, ourselves and each other. The world is not a 'fix'ed place. The world is continuously changing as we are changing; we are all living, dynamic beings. We believe in the power of active, engaged care; in the power of art; and in what art can do for all living beings, for the land we live in and for future generations. We can be the change we want to see in the world.
UNFIX NYC is a collaboration between UNFIX festival and Ren Gyo Soh.
