TERRA TRACTUS: The Earth Moves

Projects2k celebrates its 20th Anniversary of providing spectacular,
thought provoking and educational programming with TERRA TRACTUS: The
Earth Moves, June 19, 20, 22 and June 25-29, 2014!

TERRA TRACTUS: The Earth Moves continues the Projects2k tradition of
tremendous and multifaceted performance making. This year we look at
the geological history of the Earth, and the Stony Creek Quarry
itself, as they evolve through ancient history to our projected future
through elemental, tectonic, and man-made forces.

The 8-day run will include onsite food trucks for pre-performance
dining. Parking is off-site at the Walsh Intermediate School Parking
Lot (except with special limited ticketing for onsite parking).
Arrive at Walsh from 7:00pm onwards for shuttle service to the Stony
Creek Quarry. Guides, food and pre-show experience at the Stony Creek
Quarry begins 7:00pm, show starts at 8:40 sundown. More information
available by calling 203.444.8311 or emailing new.projects2k@gmail.com.


Projects2k mourns the loss of its founder Joy Wulke

Artist Joy Wulke, 65, died February 25 at Connecticut Hospice in Branford, CT after a seven-month struggle with cancer. Born in San Bernardino, CA on May 23, 1948 and raised in Long Beach, she earned a BA in Architecture from Washington State University (1970) and a Master of Environmental Design from Yale (1974). She was a widely published and decorated sculptor, photographer and public artist, winning a 2013 Arts Award from the Arts Council of Greater New Haven. The founder of the nonprofit Projects for a New Millennium (now Projects2K), she became a strong advocate for the fusion of art and science to foster environmental awareness and ecological stewardship. Her photography collection at Yale’s Beinecke library and her permanent installations, including those at the San Francisco (CA) Jewish Community Center and the Stamford (CT) Metro-North Railroad Station, continue to enrich their settings and inspire those who take the time to look. An inspirational and loving figure to many, she will be greatly missed by her husband David Connell of Stony Creek, CT, her daughter Gioia Connell of New Haven, CT, her sister Janice Wulke of Long Beach, CA, her Cousin Marleta Warneke Garner of Los Osos, CA and countless friends. A memorial is planned for early summer near her home in Branford, CT.

More on her works and artistic philosophies on life can be viewed on this website, on www.joywulke.com, and on YouTube.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to her arts and education nonprofit Projects for a New Millennium by sending checks to:

P2K Artist Joy Wulke on the The Faith Middleton Show

Life is a difficult journey, despite its beauty, and that makes us wonder if artists are ahead of the game in using their creative expression to work through challenging times. We talk with nationally recognized artist Joy Wulke, who is now living with cancer, yet continuing to plan for her future.

On our call-in show we explore whether making art can heal the body, boost immunity, and soothe the psyche—no matter what you do for a living.

Art programs flourish among terminally ill patients at Connecticut Hospice. Hospitalized or troubled children at Yale have been encouraged to draw their feelings. Is creativity a major key to feeling profoundly alive no matter how long we have to live?
