The Sanctuaries | Washington, DC


Climate March



The Sanctuaries was invited to take artistic lead for the "Keepers of Faith" contingent of the People's Climate March, which took place on April 29, 2017, with over 200,000 people participating in Washington, DC.

Our artists facilitated a community brainstorming session with artists across the city; spent weeks creating the banners, flags, and scrolls; and then hosted interactive artmaking stations at the march, where participants could personalize their flags and contribute them to the large public display.

Additionally, our musicians, poets, and healing artists performed a multidisciplinary artistic ritual on the big stage to close the march.
