Earth Cry presented by Grace Scott & Geoff Dembicki

Amidst the chaos of escalating carbon emissions, mass species die-offs, devastating floods and fires, cynical corporate spin and rising eco-fascism, one thing remains constant: the impacts of a world transformed by climate change are being felt hardest by those who did the least to cause the catastrophe.

Earth Cry is a collective of sonic storytellers giving an aural platform to people, communities and cultures who are both facing the brunt of our planet’s environmental wrath and also fighting back against the politicians and executives responsible for the damage. We use 4D sound technology to take listeners on an immersive journey into neighborhoods affected by pollution and climate change, and listen as residents narrate their own stories.
