Perform Locally

Miami artist Xavier Cortada originally painted and placed 24 shoes in a circle around the North and South Poles. The shoes represent a different part of the world affected by climate change. To do the ritual simply place the 12 pairs of shoes in a circle and read the words of those effected by global climate change.  At the end, add your 25th quote.
