Transition Berkeley Presents: Celebrating Holidays with More Fun and Less Stuff

This event has passed.

Special guest Sticky Art Lab!

Berkeley-based Annie Leonard has become world famous as the writer and star of the film “The Story of Stuff”, a fast-paced, fact-filled look at the problems created by our consumption patterns. This funny cartoon-style documentary highlights connections between environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. Come see it!  It’ll teach you something, make you laugh, and change the way you look at all the Stuff in your life.

Her recently released “The Story of Solutions” takes us to the next level. From worker-owned cooperatives and green businesses, to organized sharing and citizen participation, she shows us how working together we can all be part of the solution. Please join us, and a representative from The Story of Stuff Project, for these two short films and a lively discussion afterward. We’ll brainstorm ways we can make our lives and holidays more fulfilling with free gifts, gifts of time, and other earth-friendly alternatives. We’ll also create a map of our favorite Berkeley worker owned co-ops and green businesses, so when we do spend our money, we’ll know where to find partners that are helping the planet.

We’ll be joined by Rachel Knudson from Sticky Art Lab on University Avenue, who’ll tell us a little about this innovative new center for art and creative reuse, sustainable skills and community building.

Rachel will bring in samples of projects and crafts for kids and adults that are created at the lab. Please bring your craft ideas to share too!  Light and local seasonal refreshments will be served.

Co-sponsored by: Transition Berkeley, Sticky Art Lab and BFUU’s Social Justice Committee.
