At the Surge Sessions, we'll be digging in to a central question of our time: will the Lowcountry rise to meet the climate crisis? We're hoping for folks to leave feeling like they have a deeper, more holistic understanding of the climate crisis -- its severity and inequities, and the creative and human forces rising to answer it -- and in the end to feel energized to join the climate liberation movement.

Featuring stories and lessons from:

* Queen Quet of the Gullah Geechee Nation.

* Journalist Tony Bartelme of The Post and Courier

* Activist and oysterman Cyrus Buffum of Friends of Gadsden Creek.

* Student activist Emma Abrams of the Sunrise Movement.

* Activist and writer Belvin Olasov, Charleston Climate Coalition co-founder.

* Marine biologist Phil Dunstan of the College of Charleston.

* Photographer and engineer Jared Bramblett of the Mean High Water project.

The event is being held Wednesday November 10th at the American Theater -- doors open at 6:30pm, event begins at 7. We also want this to be COVID safe, so you'll need to bring a mask and proof of vaccination.

We look forward to seeing you there!
