Letters To the Earth is a global letter writing project that brings communities together to reflect on the climate and nature emergency. Through writing a letter we have the chance to process and express ourselves to or on behalf of the earth. These shared voices change the global conversation.
Facilitated by Zoë Solomons, this Moving Letters session is a guided space for dancers to write, draw, move or just be. Following the session participants may choose to share their written, drawn or filmed Moving Letter on the Letters To The Earth platform.
As movement artists we may feel we have been ‘writing’ letters for as long as we have moved. Taking place during the second week of COP26, this is an opportunity to move together with love, care and grief, and to share embodied wisdom with the global community.
This event is run in partnership with Siobhan Davies Studios and Letters to the Earth.
