Performance at bridge will launch Sustainability/Arts symposium

See you at the bridge.

The 2012 UNCG Symposium on Sustainability and the Arts will begin at 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, on the Peabody Park pedestrian bridge.

An opening performance, on the bridge, will have more than a dozen dancers and musicians, says Jessica Trotman (Sustainability). Steven Landis composed the music for “…and we will build our own truths;” choreography is by Elisa Foshay.

Landis, Austin Loman and Corry Mears, Creative Sustainability Initiative grant winners, will each speak during the afternoon.

The symposium will show the connection between sustainability and the arts, giving students who are not traditionally engaged in the sustainability conversation the opportunity to find connections between their work and the advancement of sustainability, Trotman explains.

It is part of Greensboro’s 17DAYS Festival.

Performance: “…and we will build our own truths” – 1 p.m. – Peabody Park bridge
Steven Landis will speak afterward
