CORE partnered with The Arts Campus at Willits to curate The “Soundtrack for Climate Action,” a list of 10 songs to inspire action available on Spotify and Youtube. CORE suggested the curator depart from the doom-and-gloom narrative that is common in climate art and focus instead on cultural strategist Favianna Rodriguez’s call to action: “Use [y]our radical imagination and visualize and manifest another world.” Kendall Smith, Director of Programming at TACAW designed programs are designed to be listened to/viewed at anytime.
