Park Dreams Project Launched

Thursday was a hot and gorgeous day to start this project of interviewing people in the public garden and the Boston Common about their dreams for humanity, ideas for making neighborhoods safer, concern for other species, and other questions related to the arts and education. My photographer assistant for the day, Ami Wang, took a number of portraits of people I interviewed. Their stories will be released in segments as audio podcasts and quicktime movies with stills, music and artwork.

Stay tuned for the audio stories as they unfold…See the project page for more information. Trailer coming soon.

 

About naturestage

Miranda Loud is the Founder and Artistic Director of the non-profit NatureStage based in Waltham, MA, and is an interdisciplinary artist - classical singer/organist/filmmaker/photographer and environmentalist. She writes about the vital need for education to include a more heart-centered approach to studying other species that leads to a sense of stewardship. Naturestage creates works that foster empathy and kinship with other species, using the emotional power of storytelling in different art forms, mainly film, photography and music. She is also a public speaker on art and social change. Her current projects include The One Language Project, Park Dreams, The Elephant Project, and Elephantasia which all use different art forms to encourage a mind shift in how we relate to other species by asking "How would the world be different if we viewed other species as someones instead of somethings? If, instead of drawing lines, we drew circles?"
