Ted Talks with Vicki Arroyo

Set aside the politics: Data shows that climate change is happening, measurably, now. And as Vicki Arroyo says, it's time to prepare our homes and cities for the new climate, with its increased risk of flooding, drought and uncertainty. She illustrates this inspiring talk with bold projects from cities all over the world -- local examples of thinking ahead.

 A highly anticipated performance this year is from Melawen Collective, based in Ashcroft BC.
The Melawmen Collective was formed in 2009, with a mandate to create connections between Aboriginal People and others through stories, history and culture ~ contemporary and traditional~ by way of various forms of art and music. It endeavors to create connections between contemporary and traditional forms of aboriginal art and artists (as well as between aboriginal artists, Indigenous and non-aboriginal), to bring perspectives together to create collaborations with one another, through art, music, and workshops.

Ali McCormick offers up her most personal offering to date with That  Place You Know, her third album. “I love bringing a song, be it a story or a feeling, to people,” Ali says. “If a song has made someone think of something they want to change about themselves, or helped them remember someone they love then I’m in my happy place.”
