EARTH DAY 2020 - A Letter of Love In A Time Of Crisis
April 22nd 2020 marked the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
Culture Declares Emergency launched their ‘Letters To the Earth’ scheme in 2019 but in light of the current global pandemic this was renamed to ‘Letters of Love in a Time of Crisis’.
MED Theatre submitted a letter and we are proud to say that it was amongst 50 chosen globally to be live streamed on the Letters to the Earth website; commemorating 50 years of Earth Day and bringing hope to communities around the world at this time.
Written by Artistic Director Mark Beeson and Moor Voices Project Coordinator Florrie Taylor, the letter reflects on our relationship with nature and what we can learn from this time and how we move forward as one community.
The short film below was made in isolation, combining snippets of footage from one of Florrie’s daily walks.
