Bridging Personal Acts of Resistance and Collective Uprising through Ecopoetics

This presentation/performance offers one way of creating culturally-appropriate and culturally-responsive learning environments for climate justice education, environments that respect and value multiple needs, diverse ways of knowing and being while inspiring the individual action and collective uprising needed in this critical moment since the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report put us on alert that we have less than 12 years to avert climate catastrophe. The presentation will be structured around my multi-year project, "1000 Gifts of Decolonial Love", a community performance and epic instructional video poem that weaves together instructions for folding paper cranes, the story of Sadako, Hiroshima victim whose paper cranes came to symbolize peace; a story of “climate colonialism” and the endangerment of cranes in Taiwan; and contemporary liberation struggles of Indigenous resurgence and M4BL. The workshop integrates ecopoetics, paperfolding as contemplative activism, and story circle.
