Whale Guitar/World Oceans Day — Cable Car
We are The Ocean State. If we trash the ocean, we’ll have to get new license plates. (Plus life will suck and we’ll all be dead.) This Thursday the Cable Car Cinema will be hosting a World Oceans Day special event — The Whale Guitar World Oceans Day Eco-Arts Fest. Presented by The Whale Guitar Project, the evening will include a screening of the movie “A Plastic Ocean,” a Q&A with environmental experts, café and sidewalk exhibitions, and local musicians performing on the whale guitar (pictured below with unidentified man). And the weather is looking good finally.
An evening of film, poetry, art, science, actions and live music inspired by oceans, for the sake of preserving living oceans. Featuring musicians playing The Whale Guitar, we’ll celebrate our love of the marine environment, learn about the pervasive plastic problem it is facing, discover helpful actions we can practice, and meet local groups we can join and support that are creating positive solutions.
A Q&A follows the film with marine biologist/musician Jodie Treloar and members of the Sierra Club, Clean Water Action, and Save The Bay sharing information on the Providence Bag Ban and other actions you can take to reduce plastic trash and preserve the life of the ocean and its myriad creatures.
Tickets start at $20, but the higher ticket sponsorship levels sustain The Whale Guitar Project itself. Go to Brown Paper tickets for info.
