Die-in for Climate Action at UMMA

Sat, Jul 27, 2019 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm


Stand up for a sustainable future. Die-in.

What does our planet's sustainability mean to you? Join Ann Arbor Climate Mobilization and the U-M Museum of Art for a Die-in to take place in the UMMA exhibition The World to Come: Art in the Age of the Anthropocene. This event is intended to raise awareness about both the climate crisis and the sixth extinction and rally our community to fight for a sustainable future.

A "die-in" is a protest meant to illustrate what is at stake if we don't act. The event will start with the die-in inside the Museum where participants will lie or sit motionless in the gallery for eleven minutes (symbolizing the number of years we have left to enact meaningful change and avert the worst climate catastrophes). Following this, participants will meet on the Museum steps and hear the words of local speakers addressing our current environmental situation.

Meet in the Taubman Gallery, 2nd floor. Please leave large signs outside the Museum; UMMA will have a place to leave these and other items that pose a safety risk inside the building.
