California Institute of the Arts | Anchor Island: A mobile performance stage for community engagement. | Goal 3: Equitable and sustainable land use and development without displacement | Goal 6: Accessible parks, beaches, recreational waters, public lands, and public spaces that create opportunities for respite, recreation, ecological discovery, and cultural activities

Anchor Island brings a mobile, modular stage to the pocket park at Pico Union to serve as a micro-center of dialogue and performance. Musicians and actors will share ideas with the neighborhood to explore solutions for building community resilience in an age of climate change. As scientist Katherine Hayhoe asserts, the most important thing you can do to fight climate change is talk about it, and we need every global citizen engaged. The project will work directly with partners and stakeholders around the resilience work already happening through PUHC in the networks of streets and alleyways. The resulting stage design will embody a participatory, mycelial ethos. A program of events will be developed in tandem with stage growth, which will serve as a radiant, reproducible anchor island for creative performance and conversation.
