For her newest work, On Behalf of Nature, Meredith Monk offers a poetic meditation on the environment, inspired in part by the Buddhist notion of conjoining heaven and earth through human beings.

Responding to the precarious state of our global ecology, Monk creates a space at the threshold where human, natural and spiritual elements are woven into a delicate whole, illuminating the interconnection and interdependency of us all.

Join this cross-disciplinary panel of artists and activists to discuss how science, art and spirituality can influence the way we are living on the planet.
