We invite you to an evening of story and song about water–our relationship to it, what we do in our communities with and for water, and the need to explore new solutions to restore a healthy balance between water and ourselves. The current and emerging issues of water worldwide, and in our local watersheds, asks us to collaborate, convene and organize around this critical issue. What are our communities already doing to restore our water relations and how we can each support each other? Kate Bunney of Walking Water will introduce the walk from Mono Lake to Los Angeles that completed last year and our upcoming Walk with Local Waters along Lagunitas Creek in August. The evening includes music from Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker of MaMuse.
Kate Bunney was born and raised in the UK. For 15 years, she lived in one of the most progressive communities in the world and focused on educational programs and consultancy for communities in conflict areas, fundraising, global networking, organizing and public relations. One of her main roles was organizing and walking Pilgrimage, through Israel and Palestine, Colombia and Europe, as a way of empowering social action and re-discovering our potential as agents of change. In 2012 Kate founded Walking Water – a pilgrimage with the waters – as a way to inspire us to be in community, be in relation with the waters and the places we live, and ultimately to experience the huge potential we all have to create change.
Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker of MaMuse are inspired by folk and gospel traditions, creating uplifting music for the pure joy of it and to inspire the world into thriving. MaMuse invokes a musical presence that inspires the opening of the heart. Playing a family of varied acoustic instruments including upright bass, guitar, mandolins, ukulele, and flutes, these two powerful women embody a love for all of life. MaMuse are now in their tenth year and have just released their fifth album "Prayers for Freedom".
