HighWaterLine Art Project

Friday, Aug 31, 2007

HighWaterLine is a summer long project in which an artist will draw a chalkline marking the predicted climate change flood zone around the entire coast of Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan. Be a part of this project by being an HWL volunteer! See NYT, June 16, 2007, Art Section for story!

If you are interested and meet the following criteria, eve@highwaterline.org to volunteer:

1) Must have a bike and be comfortable biking in NYC, and with a trailer with about 100 lbs on it. (I have the trailer and we will attach it to your seatpost).

2) Available to commit dates in the timeline http://www.highwaterline.org/timeline.html. The chalking dates will start at about 8am and last until about 4pm and will involve a lot of biking/walking. The beacon days will start about 7am and end after sundown, but are flexible in the middle of the day. They would involve being in a park for the day.

3) Be comfortable speaking with people about climate change.

This is a great opportunity to get out and promote positive actions, talk to people about climate change and see some amazing parts of Brooklyn! I will provide energy bars and lunch each day. There will be a documentary film team following as well. More information on the project is available at http://highwaterline.org
