West County Arts & Culture is fundraising for Piti Theatre's Winter - Spring Tour to underserved communities! We have a $2000 match for your donations! All donors will receive two mp3's from Piti's album with Carrie Ferguson "Greatest Bits, Vol. 1"
"will leave young audiences . . . with some valuable lessons about helping our winged friends — and with some much-needed hope for the bees.” - Joff Schmidt, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Piti Theatre creates performances and community building events that accelerate local transformation towards joy, sustainability and justice. To Bee or Not to Bee has brought a message of environmental stewardship to families and schools around New England since 2012, engaging all ages in the fight to save pollinators and spreading the message about alternatives to pesticide use. Piti's latest performance Canary in the Gold Mine is in demand by community organizers around the U.S. working to push back on the nationwide rollout of 5G.
Why this tour?
· To leverage the impact of live theatre to bring more “people power” to the pollinator crisis by inspiring audiences to help pollinators and planting the seeds of environmental stewardship in young people.
· To help Piti's new performance "Canary in the Gold Mine" engage communities in the question of whether they want 5G “small-cell antennas” in their front yards and provide comfort and laughter to anyone who has experienced or cared for someone with a chronic health condition
