Filament to Speak at Green Drinks Chicago

Filament is excited to be part of this month’s Chicago Green Drinks as the featured Non-Profit. We are proud of our ongoing relationship with Foresight Design Initiative as their Artist is Residence.

What role do the arts play in dealing with environmental challenges and fostering social action? Please join us at Green Drinks next Tuesday, Sept 13, where the topic of discussion will be “Behind the Curtain – Making Art Sustainable,”  focusing on the efforts of Filament Theatre Ensemble as they pioneer zero waste theatre for their upcoming production, From the Circle: Remembering the Earth Through Folktales. The potential in Filament’s vision can only be realized if Chicago’s artistic community is committed to collaboration. Bring your colleagues to enrich the evening’s discussion and join the effort to reimagine the evolving relationship between art and the environment.
