The Regina Folk Festival has joined forces with Guest Curator Music Declares Emergency this year to bring attention to climate action. Music Declares Emergency is "a group of artists, music industry professionals, organizations and music fans that stand together to declare a climate and ecological emergency. We believe in the power of music to promote the cultural change needed to create a better future." Regina Folk Festival and Music Declares Emergency were able to interview artists and musicians and highlight why these artists support climate action and how they factor sustainability into their work!
Additionally, "The Regina Folk Festival’s 2023 theme is Web of Life: Music and community in harmony with the Earth. This summer we will celebrate the natural world, and the musicians, people and groups working to protect it, with the goal of encouraging greater engagement with environmental issues and to combat climate dread.
While being the biggest party of the year, the Regina Folk Festival works to pay attention to emerging dialogues in the community, including the climate emergency, a leading concern of our time.
This year we commit to reviewing the Regina Folk Festival’s connection to environmental sustainability and our interdependence with the natural world, with 2023 being year one of our learning. We must do this in order to help heal our planet and protect our future." We suggest learning more at reginafolkfestival.com.
