Julia Othmer – Performance Artist – SEVEN – Around the World in Seven Songs is a multimedia interdisciplinary project addressing climate change and our endangered natural and cultural world. Othmer focuses on seven locations around the globe – one on each continent. In collaboration with local artists, artisans, environmental non-profits and NGOs, she curates a unique arts experience celebrating this specific place. At the center of each location celebration is a musical interpretation, performed in a language indigenous to the place.
SEVEN includes a film of these collaborations, a studio album of music, and a comprehensive website detailing the project and all of its global collaborators.
Grant funds will be used to pay contributing artists’ fees, locally and internationally.
