Tapestry #5. Don't Mine Our Water
Our social engagement plan is to support the film through activating a funding circle the community partners that focus on ecological and economic sustainability in rural communities with a specific focus on the way that creative practice is central to building resilience. Please consider supporting local non-profit organizations in Yuba County dedicated to preserving the environment and have been central to the San Juan Ridge community’s success.
In addition to festival distribution we hope to travel A Radical Stitch and the tapestries to community centers, schools and museums to inspire others to organize and tell their story through creative projects.
