July Flux Saturday: Dirty Time on Governors Island
July 30 @ 1:00 pm – 8:00 pm UTC-5
Join Dirty Time for a day full of activities celebrating dirt and dirtyness!
We’ll start with a dirt collecting session from 1-3pm: Bring soil from somewhere in your life that is
important to you or that has a good story behind it. We’ll accession your dirt into our traveling
Dirty Library and you can tell its story on our Dirty Library Hotline. You can also listen to other
people’s Dirty Stories.
At 3pm we’ll begin meandering. Join Dirty Time on a guided meditation/Dirty Walk where we’ll
get up close and personal with Governors Island’s dirt, and eventually make our way to the
Governors Island Dirtball Court and play a little Dirtball (bring a ball–any ball–if you’ve got one)
together to warm up/get our juices flowing for….
Dirty Karaoke at 5:30pm! This is when we sing our hearts out, railing against the impending
doom of climate change. Bring your favorite song about dirt, death or destruction and we’ll help
each other keep our spirits up.
Dirty Time is Walker Tufts (@jw4lker) & Heather Kapplow (@heather_kapplow).
Dirt is a time capsule – it holds a record of everything that’s ever happened. And it’s a time
machine – it breaks you down and shoots you into the future. But it’s here right now too. It feeds
you and it eats you.
Dirty Time is here to guide you on a journey. You have been taught that dirty is bad, but it’s not
true. Dirty is good. It’s very, very good. Dirt is your companion, your portal to the past and the
future. And here’s a dirty little secret: there is no clean that’s not dirty. Not the cloud, not the
Metaverse, and definitely not the screen. Dirty Time is here to help you recognize your glorious,
delicious dirtiness – your connection to all time through dirt. To help you feel your rootedness and
to get you sprouting. Join us on the journey!
