Story & Experience

On September 12, 2015, Radical Joy for Hard Times partnered with ten communities around the world that have been severely affected by mineral extraction. From a journalist’s visit to a children’s cemetery in a polluted city in Azerbaijan, to young South African honoring their ancestors who labored in gold mines, to a revitalization of traditional dances in an indigenous village in the Amazon, people created art and music to express not just how it hurts to live with the constant assault of fossil fuel exploitation, but how immense is their love for their home place. This video tells the story of what happened.
