Arts + Environmental Sustainability Forum (Basalt)

" "

Join us for CBCA’s second Arts + Environmental Sustainability Forum in 2022, hosted in Basalt, CO. This Forum will explore the intersection of science, creativity, culture and community action to foster awareness and engagement to combat climate change. Creative storytelling and empowerment can shift the narrative about environmental justice and collective imagination to envision and realize a better future.

Featuring speakers from the Roaring Fork Valley and across Colorado, this Forum will be hosted at TACAW (The Arts Campus at Willits), the nation’s first net-zero, all-electric performing arts facility that functions using at or near net-zero energy usage throughout the year.
