Rise Up! explores the impacts of sea level rise on the communities and coastlines of Vinalhaven, North Haven, and Rockland, Maine. The performance features live music performed by Halcyon String Quartet, Jill Pelto's watercolor painting "Rising Mitigation," and film by video artist Luke Fatora. Through a combination of live music and synchronous film, Rise Up! encourages reflection and action, inspires empathy, and calls on all ages to think deeply about the opportunities for resilience and change within our communities.
