compassionate action enterprises
In 2000, Lisa Kaftori and I founded Compassionate Action Enterprises to create and promote art and interaction geared toward ecofeminism, environmental ethics, social, political, and cultural activism. Using an interdisciplinary team approach, CAE promotes art and activities emphasizing the Earth as humanity’s physical, spiritual and metaphorical common ground. CAE uses art strategies to raise awareness, cultivate connections, encourage understanding and advocate respect for the uniqueness of individuals and the strength of collective cooperation. CAE seeks to raise awareness and cultivate understanding by developing creative art strategies that address specific issues challenging the future sustainability of our world. CAE has performed actions in the United States, Europe, Israel and Asia, working with communities and with humble gestures to bring art into the everyday.
