Pathway to Paris, together with 350.org and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) today announced a special concert on September 14th at the historic Masonic in San Francisco. Set to cap off the Global Climate Action Summit, the concert will focus on the potential for cities to push for, achieve, and go beyond the climate targets highlighted in the Paris Agreement.
Bringing together leading musicians, artists, thinkers, and policymakers, this concert will serve as a call to action, urging the international community to ramp up ambition towards a climate safe future for all.
This marks the fourth collaboration between the partners who previously joined forces for concerts in each of the last three years. The first concerts, in Paris in 2015, coincided with the adoption of the Paris Agreement, while events in 2016 and 2017 served to celebrate climate action by state and non-state actors. Most recently, 2017 saw the partners host a concert at New York City’s historic Carnegie Hall where Pathway to Paris announced the launch of the ‘1000 Cities’ initiative. The initiative invites all cities of the world to transition off fossil fuels and move to 100% renewable energy by 2040 in order to turn the Paris Agreement into reality.
“In the world of music, the best way to improve is through collaboration. This is the same with the critical issue of climate change. We must join together to make this the most ambitious collaboration of our century. We will not be able to implement crucial and challenging solutions to climate change, plastic pollution, and all urgent environmental problems as long as we stand divided. Inseparable from the issue of climate change is the need for world peace, global communication, and an international collaboration unmatched by any event in human history.”– Co-Founder of Pathway to Paris, Jesse Paris Smith
“Cities play a critical role in transforming our world out of the era of fossil fuels and into a renewable world. This is our time to make this shift and transform our cities to become sustainable, resilient cities for us all and future generations. This is our chance as our window of time is narrowing.” – Co-Founder of Pathway to Paris, Rebecca Foon
Along with Patti Smith and Bob Weir, the concert will also feature Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tenzin Choegyal, French pop-soul singer Imany, renowned artist Olafur Eliasson, and Pathway to Paris Founders Jesse Paris Smith and Rebecca Foon. Speakers also include 350.org’s Bill McKibben.
Artist Olafur Eliasson will turn the whole audience into artists by creating an interactive collective artwork. Eliasson leads a choreography that motions its audience to hold up a Little Sun solar lantern. The result is a visually striking solar-powered ‘sunrise’ which raises awareness for climate action and energy equality.
All proceeds from this evening will be donated to 350.org, Pathway to Paris, and the United Nations Development Programme.

I hope you’re doing well! I am proud to let you know that on June 3rd I am participating in the 1 Million Steps 4 OCD Walk to help raise awareness for OCD and related disorders. This cause is incredibly important to me and very dear to my heart and I am so proud to be an OCDAdvocate. The Walk also raises money for the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) in support of their work to help everyone affected by OCD and related disorders to live full and productive lives.
It is estimated that 1 in 100 adults live with OCD. This is roughly the number of people living in the city of Houston, TX. In children and teens, estimates are as high as 1 in 200, or about the same number of kids that have diabetes. Despite its prevalence, OCD is often misunderstood and misrepresented in the media, joked about, portrayed as a personality quirk or helpful trait that keeps people organized and tidy. In reality, OCD is debilitating and severely impacts those living with the disorder, as well as their friends and family.
The IOCDF is the largest non-profit organization focused solely on improving the lives of those impacted by OCD and related disorders. This June, I will join members of the OCD community from across the country and around the world as we walk to raise awareness, hope, and funds to support the important programs of the IOCDF and their partnering local affiliates.
I am committed to raising as much funding as possible in donations for the Walk and need your help! Every donation makes a difference, no matter how small. I am also so deeply thankful to everyone who has already donated! It is so moving and encouraging and you are helping so much. :)
Thank you in advance for your support!
All the best to you,
I will be giving a 5 min talk on climate action during the Indigo Girls set at Motor City Casino!!!
The ENTRANCE to the march will be at W 72nd Street entering onto Central Park West. We will be marching south. The NYPD will move the entrance up north as needed depending on crowd size (So if you get there later, you make have to go up to 79th). The exact details of the planned route will be discussed at our press conference on the steps of City Hall on Thursday, March 15. This announcement will be led by students.
**This is a ticketed event.**
Literati Bookstore of downtown Ann Arbor is thrilled to welcome artist, performer, and author Patti Smith to the DIA's Detroit Film Theatre at theDetroit Institute of Arts on Wednesday, February 14th. Patti will be joined by her son Jackson and daughter Jesse for an eclectic and intimate evening of readings, personal stories, and songs related to her new book Devotion. A Q&A will follow.
Tickets are $20 (service fee not included) and include a hardcover copy of Devotion, to be picked up at the venue. Seating is general admission. Literati will be on hand for additional book sales. There will be no signing following the event.
About the Book:
A work of creative brilliance may seem like magic--its source a mystery, its impact unexpectedly stirring. How does an artist accomplish such an achievement, connecting deeply with an audience never met? In this groundbreaking book, one of our cultures beloved artists offers a detailed account of her own creative process, inspirations, and unexpected connections.
Patti Smith first presents an original and beautifully crafted tale of obsession--a young skater who lives for her art, a possessive collector who ruthlessly seeks his prize, a relationship forged of need both craven and exalted. She then takes us on a second journey, exploring the sources of her story. We travel through the South of France to Camus's house, and visit the garden of the great publisher Gallimard where the ghosts of Mishima, Nabokov, and Genet mingle. Smith tracks down Simone Weil's grave in a lonely cemetery, hours from London, and winds through the nameless Paris streets of Patrick Modiano's novels. Whether writing in a café or a train, Smith generously opens her notebooks and lets us glimpse the alchemy of her art and craft in this arresting and original book on writing.

Patti Smith is a writer, performer, and visual artist. Her memoir Just Kids received a National Book Award, and her recent book M Train is a critically acclaimed New York Times best-seller.

New York City Public Advocate Tish James has announced a Public Hearing on Climate Change on November 29th. New York City has an important role to play on climate and we’re making this our city’s time to DIVEST FROM FOSSIL FUELS.
On the 5th anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, 5,000 people joined together to remember the victims of the storm and rose up to demand New York City take bold climate action, including divestment.
The New York City pension funds currently pour billions of our public funds into oil, gas and pipeline corporations – the very same corporations fueling storms like Superstorm Sandy and Harvey, Maria and Irma, whose business model will drown our city if we don’t stop them.
Join us for a rally before the hearing at 8:30 am and help us pack the hearing room at 9:30. Bring your signs and your energy to the rally, and get ready to send a loud and clear message – it’s time to #DivestNY!
Inksplash: The Art of Impressions is an invitational exhibition of artists who make impressions. Printmakers are capable of producing multiple images from the same plate or matrix. Each print produced is not a copy but considered an original impression, revealing unique qualities and variations.

Pathway to Paris: Concert to Fight Climate Change
Pathway to Paris, a climate change initiative focused on turning the Paris Agreement into reality, will partner with the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and 350.org for a concert on climate action, to be held at Carnegie Hall in New York City on November 5, 2017.
Pathway to Paris promises to be a night of incredible musical performances and rousing speeches aimed at advancing the important work of fighting climate change while offering innovative solutions.
Set to take place on the eve of COP 23 - the United Nations conference on climate change that kicks off in Bonn, Germany - the evening will feature internationally recognized musicians and speakers, including Patti Smith, Joan Baez, Bill McKibben, Dr. Vandana Shiva, Tanya Tagaq, Flea, Talib Kweli, Cat Power, Michael Stipe, Tenzin Choegyal, and Pathway to Paris founders Rebecca Foon and Jesse Paris Smith, and more.

Pathway to Paris will also be celebrating the launch of its latest project. The bold new initiative, to be unveiled next month, will encourage the world to go above and beyond the targets of the Paris Agreement.
“This is our moment to move towards a renewable, resilient future as we are running out of time,” Rebecca Foon said. “We can achieve this by working together to create resilient cities that are no longer dependent on fossil fuels and create a world we want to live in.”
“We believe in the power of music and its ability to heal and unify citizens in a time of crisis. We must make this fight our biggest most ambitious collaboration of all time. The world must work as a team, and the cities of our planet must join together to lead the way,” added Jesse Paris Smith.
Since its inception, Pathway to Paris has partnered with UNDP and 350.org, leaders in environmental action. This alliance has created an unstoppable force in the effort to slow climate change by contributing to a multitude of initiatives globally; from benefit farmers in the Sahel, to preparing for rising sea-levels and expanding the use of renewable energy.
“Like the Paris Agreement itself, this concert and this partnership – bringing together artists, innovators, and policymakers– is a message to the world that sustainable development and shared prosperity go hand-in-hand with protecting our planet,” notes Achim Steiner, Administrator of UNDP. “Each of us, each of our communities, our cities, and our companies has a role to play in achieving this shared objective. We’re very excited to partner with Pathway and 350.org to help make this a success.”

The Rockaway Artists Alliance, Inc. (RAA) is pleased to announce an exhibition of recent artworks by Christopher Saucedo. Collectively titled Flood Brothers, this water-centric exhibition will present sculpture, drawings and tapestries. The opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Sunday, October 29, 2017, 12pm - 5pm in RAA’s sTudio 7 Gallery in Fort Tilden, a former United States Army installation on the coast in the New York City borough of Queens. The fort is now part of the Jamaica Bay Unit of the National Park Service.
October 29th marks the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, the harrowing storm that devastated the Rockaway Peninsula and damaged thousands of homes, including the artist's. Saucedo’s exhibition title, Flood Brothers is intended to remind us all of the irrevocable bond that storm-ravaged communities all share and the complexities of living on the water’s edge. Hurricane Sandy was not Saucedo’s first flood, as Hurricane Katrina destroyed his home and studio in New Orleans seven years prior. The artist has been preoccupied with the multifaceted relationship we all have with water, and his artwork asks us to contemplate both the good and the bad in water.
Flood Brothers remains on view until November 12, 2017 and is open weekends 12 pm – 5 pm and by appointment. Check the RAA website:www.rockawayartistsalliance.org/exhibitions for dates and times of additional programming on the subjects of Hurricane Sandy, Jamaica Bay and our relationship with water to be scheduled during the run of Flood Brothers. An exhibition catalogue is in production, documenting all of Saucedo’s hydro-centric artwork.
350NYC is one of the many members of the Sandy5 Coalition.
The devastation in Puerto Rico has confirmed what we've known in NYC since Superstorm Sandy hit five years ago – that climate-fueled disasters destroy homes and tear families apart with low-income people and people of color hit first and worst. It’s past time that our elected officials recognize this threat and take bold steps to protect New Yorkers and our planet by acting on climate.
March with us across the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday, October 28, five-years after Superstorm Sandy, to demand bold climate action now.
Many communities have already suffered the impacts of extreme weather, but New Yorkers are rising up, and on October 28th, we will march together from Cadman Plaza at 11:00 am, over the Brooklyn Bridge to the Alfred E. Smith Houses in Manhattan. RSVP now and march with us:
