Jody Sperling and Matthew Burtner: Expressing Nature Through Art

By May 1, 2022 No Comments

Ethical NYC eco-artist-in-residence and eco-kinetic dance maker Jody Sperling and her “eco-acoustic“ collaborator Matthew Burtner joined our Young Ethical Explorers to speak about how they address issues of climate change through art making. Explore nature’s movements and sounds in innovative, active ways!

We believe dance can be a powerful force moving us toward a more embodied, sustainable, and equitable future.

Special Invitation for the NYSEC Community: Don’t miss TimeLapse Dance spring performances of Plastic Trees at The 14th Street Y, May 5-7. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets! Promo code for discounted tickets is EthicalNYC.


Young Ethical Explorers is our Humanist Sunday school, designed for youngsters from ages 4 to 13, and takes place concurrent with our Sunday Platform meetings. Sessions raise issues of personal identity and integrity, appreciation and respect for others, and knowledge of religions, philosophies, and social concerns. Topics are explored in an age-appropriate way through discussion, storytelling, dramatization, music, art, games, and field trips.
