About this project

The Somatic Natural History Archive

This project takes environmental education and wraps it in performance art.

With your support, I will conduct field research with 40 threatened species and perform their unique attributes in a series of public performances. Each performance will include a presentation from a local environmental scientist who will discuss regional wildlife protection initiatives.

All money raised through Kickstarter will fund the planning and implementation of these public performances - which will be produced throughout the country, starting with New York (NY), Santa Fe (NM), San Francisco (CA), and Keene (NH) in 2010. All efforts will be made to make these events as accessible and inclusive as possible.

Please considering making a pledge, and joining me in this biodiversity adventure!

Sincerely,

Karl Cronin
