Holy Cow -Can art save our world?

Holy Cow final poster Foz

Animal agriculture, especially the massive impact of beef on our climate.  I was surprised that there was nearly no action taken by policy makers or a substantial political campaign to raise awareness. I had to do something! felt helpless and realised I didn’t know how to talk about it without becoming too excited or angry.. I had to find ways to share these facts and feelings but especially finding ways to do it without being too dry and didactic.

This brought me to question if Art can actually affect change in our behavior and habits.
So what do you think?

I invite you to come and share this mix bag of live performance, music, illustrations, interviews, unexpected interventions (that’s for your Foz) and a quiz with a PRIZE!

In October 2018 I had the opportunity to join a group of internationals on a build, harvesting and learning camp in Palestine organised by ICAHD (the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions) and Torat Tzedek, an Israeli NGO run by Rabbi Arik Ascherman. The group was made up of people from the UK, Germany, Italy, Finland, Australia and the USA. We spent four days helping to build a community centre in the village of Bardala, in the north of the Jordan Valley; three days in Awarta, near Nablus, helping with the olive harvest and staying with a wonderful and hospitable family. The last very intensive four days were based in Bethlehem, with trips to Ramallah, Jerusalem, Hebron, the Negev, Tel Aviv and Jaffa.
