Feet to the Fire Festival

An Eco-Arts Festival with Global Implications | Bring the Whole Family!

The Jonah Center is a community partner with Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts in this exciting community event

Saturday May 10, noon to 5 p.m. in Veterans Park


How can we become more aware of our environmental impact and imagine a sustainable future? Wesleyan University engages the arts to explore the possibilities through the Feet to the Fire Festival at Middletown’s Veterans Park. Feet to the Fire is an eco-arts festival for the whole family featuring music, dance and theater performances, interactive exhibits and a farmers market with food from Connecticut vendors. Exhibits coordinated by the Jonah Center for Earth and Art will highlight energy conservation, sustainability and resilient communities.

Ann Carlson, an award-winning choreographer, launches a new series of performance works, Planet Next, that envision life on a future earth. The first of these works, Green Movement, uses elements of humor and surprise while challenging us to intimately confront the realities of our present day existence.

Army Base Meeting at Wesleyan, Sun Feb 17….

February 16, 2008

From Wesleying blog:

Have you heard that the Army plans to build a new base on Freeman Road in Middletown, which is very close to campus? Want to learn about the environmental risks posed by the location selected for the base? Want a chance to make your voice heard on the issue, or do you just want to learn what all the fuss is about?

Come to the WSA meeting this Sunday at 7PM in Usdan 108 to hear the Mayor of Middletown, Sebastian Giuliano, speak about the Army Base. Also a representative from the CT River Watershed Council will be speaking on the issue and will share information about the environmental concerns.

There will be opportunities to ask questions to both speakers and there will also be a chance to submit inquiries directly to the Army.

As always, the first 10 minutes of the meeting will be an open forum for student concerns. Please feel free to contact with any questions or concerns.
