The fifth annual Earth Action Day comes to Southern Community Park in Chapel Hill on Saturday, April 14, from noon to 5 p.m. Nonprofits, commercial organizations and artists are invited to submit an application to share their message educating and encouraging the latest in living sustainably to a crowd of over 3,500 people in the community.
Earth Action Day is a local event that encourages visitors to learn about the earth’s bounty and how our daily choices affect our environment. Southern Community Park is the perfect place to hold the event, as it was designed with a focus on public art utilizing on-site materials that showcase the thematic elements of earth, air, water, fire, fauna and flora.
Visitors at the event will have the chance to enjoy the Swap-O-Rama clothing swap, interactive workshops, live entertainment and the local food pavilion. We are also excited to bring back the mARTket, a fair featuring artists who create work fundamentally using recycled and up-cycled materials. Local artists who follow such a sustainable approach are encouraged to apply to sell their artwork.
The application deadline for entry is due March 10. The exhibition fee for artists and non-profits is $50 and for commercial organizations, $150. Register online to exhibit at Earth Action Day; apply early as space is limited.
