June 25th between 8am and 6pm
Call for performances from musicians, poets, jugglers, circus, theatre and more!
On June 25th between 8am and 6pm Extinction Rebellion along with a number of other allied organizations, artists, activists, and community members will take over the intersection at Bay and Adelaide. Our goal is to be a peaceful, joyful, inclusive and artistic protest welcoming people into our fight against climate change, and for climate justice.
The intersection of Bay and Adelaide houses several of Canada’s leading investors in fossil fuels. It is where major financial, environmental and political decisions about our city and our country are made. Instead, we want corporations on Bay St. to be part of a brave new green and equitable world. Let’s imagine a future we want to be part of together!
The plan is to cooperate with police and stick to public sidewalks when asked.
1. The Media and Government tell the truth about our climate crisis.
2. That the government and businesses develop a plan that brings us to net-zero emissions by 2025.
3. A people's assembly to oversee the transition.
We are looking for performances in any discipline (circus, juggling, puppetry, music, theatre etc.) between 30 seconds and 50 minutes that speak to any or all of the following themes: collective joy, environmental love, climate and social justice, Indigenous rights and sovereignty, intergenerational struggle, climate change, extinction and/or critiques fossil fuel capitalism and/or imperialist power relations. Imagine a political busker fest.
This is an inclusive event. We have a zero-tolerance policy for racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of hatred. We strongly encourage submissions from performers of colour, Indigenous performers, queer/trans/non-binary/gender fluid performers, performers with disabilities or who are differently-abled, performers of all sizes and capabilities, and new generation/emerging performers.
