As part of the Center-funded project RAIR: Live at the Dump, RAIR (Recycled Artist in Residency) will screen the children's science fiction movie WALL-E at its outdoor recycling facility in Northeast Philadelphia. Families are invited to participate in games, a photo booth, and t-shirt printing before the film screening.
Live at the Dump is an interactive, site-specific program that utilizes a series of films, performances, and discussions to increase public awareness of the waste stream and the role of art in shaping social and environmental consciousness.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; movie with Spanish subtitles begins after sundown at 8 p.m. Rain date: May 1.
