Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Charlotte Street Foundation is hosting a series, Earth/Work: Artists & Sustainable Living featuring conversations with individuals creating sustainable lives and reimagining our connection with the planet.
Each event in the speaker series will include a short, informal presentation about what led each speaker to embark on their creative paths and what keeps them moving forward. Participation, discussion, and questions encouraged.
On Saturday, March 25 from 2 – 3 p.m., Carl Stafford will speak about MY REGION WINS! (MRW!), a non-profit whose mission is to transcend everyday challenges by using the arts to nurture creative and undeveloped ideas that shape society. As the founder, Stafford’s vision is to have art and nature be instrumental in addressing environmental and social injustice issues.
Stafford’s work includes transforming blighted areas into vibrant native plant gardens, organic gardening, coaching, speaking, restoring, and advocating. His goal is to revive the west side of KC’s District 5 by using natural resources as assets, generating revenue to compensate residents with the aim for neighborhoods to become self-sustaining economies.
This free event will be held at the Charlotte Street Kemper Library, 3333 Wyoming, Kansas City, MO. RSVPs are encouraged. To learn more, visit charlottestreet.org.
