Rev. Billy and the Church of Life After Shopping

Rev. Billy and the Church of Life After Shopping visit MICA on Friday, April 1 at 7 p.m. in Brown Center's Falvey Hall (1301 W. Mount Royal Ave.). Admission is free.

Rev. Billy describes his organization's work with, "Since 1996 our project has expanded from a one-man performance artist preaching against consumerism on the sidewalks of Times Square to a 40-person choir and 7-person band with dozens of original songs, a critically-acclaimed stage show, a major motion picture and multiple media platforms. We have demonstrated commitment to educating the public about the consequences of unsustainable consumption. Our message--consuming less--is the single most effective and immediate response an individual can take to immediately halting the climate crisis. This same message has reached millions of people and has contributed to the public's increasing awareness of the relationship between shopping and climate change. Besides our long-term commitment to promoting sustainable consumption, our organization's efforts to revitalize public space and defend the First Amendment have been documented all over the world."
