Posted by novoscene on February 4, 2009

The final event of the inaugural Comuni-tree festival will feature speakers, performance and mixed media dedicated moving us all towards a more culturally rich, ecologically minded society. Tonight’s program features a keynote by Joanna Macy (Eco-Philosopher, Author, Buddhist Scholar) and the panel discussion “The Ecology and Economy of Community,” with Brahm Ahmadi (founder of Peoples Grocery), Kemba Shakur (Urban Releaf), Beth Waitkus (Insight Garden Project), and special guest Drew Dellinger (Poets for Global Justice). There’ll also be live music by flamenco, reggae, folk artists LoCura. This event is a benefit to raise money for COV Records (Art in Action) to create a Green Media Arts Center for Oakland youth.
