Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, published in 1962, is considered by many to be an essential book that helped to spark the modern environmental movement. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Silent Spring‘s publication, and programs celebrating this anniversary have been happening in the U.S. and around the world.
The Borderbend Arts Collective is working with other partnering organizations to present “Celebrating Silent Spring at 50.” This program includes creative responses to Silent Spring and celebrations of Rachel Carson’s life and legacy – with events, artistic contributions (writings, music, visual art, multidisciplinary works), and more. One of this program’s goals is for people and organizations from each of the U.S.’s 50 states to contribute to “Celebrating Silent Spring at 50,” and the organization welcomes contributions from around the world.
