Art Dialogue took "To the Streets" to host a Safe Planet Film Night and Outreach Event at The Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD), held June 19-24, 2012 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  World leaders, government officials, and civil society and private sector representatives came together to discuss the best ways to work towards achieving a global ‘green economy', poverty eradication and sustainable development.  

 

Art Dialogue's Film Night and Panel Discussion "Pops Out!  Transformative Education, Creativity & Sustainable Development" was held at the Cidade Universitária da Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro on June 21.  Featured were: The Story of Bottled Water (Annie Leonard), The SS Palo Alto Art Park (Nomi Talisman), Midway Film Trailer (Chris Jordan), Sinking Bodies (Jamaica Osorio), Plastic Bag (Ramin Bahrani).

 

Art Dialogue's Outreach Event "To the Streets: Carnival & Intervention" was held on June 23 at Impanema Beach.  Barbara Benish, together with TEF Co-founder June Gorman, 5Gyres Leslie Moyers, local and foreign artists, and student volunteers from The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, created a public intervention.  Together, they formed a parade of sea-themed characters including mermaids, fish and Neptune, the Roman god of water and the sea.  Their costumes, made of recycled plastic, were designed by Jana Prekova (award-winning scenographer and costume designer for the Czech National Theatre) and Jimena Villaseca (Santiago, Chile).  The energetic group carried the Safe Planet banner, created quite a spectacle and engaged curious beach-goershanded in conversation about e-waste, climate change, sustainable education and plastic pollution in the marine environment.  Informational flyers to handed out to hundreds of people.
