First Amendment is pleased to announce the opening reception of ‘LESS IS MORE: Exploring Mindfulness and Conscious Consumption,’ a collaborative experience curated by our friends Temple Children in Downtown San Francisco.

‘LESS IS MORE’ opens dialogue surrounding hyper-consumption as a dominant driver of environmental degradation and climate change. This experiential collection navigates between the macro and micro, highlighting the myriad effects that individualistic decisions have on our our planet’s fragile natural resources and ecosystems. Temple Children is an experimental arts and sustainability platform uniting a diverse global community of creatives to generate collaboration for positive change. In search of a collective consciousness, this dedicated group challenges us to look inward and recognize the interconnectedness between human beings and our environments.

The exhibition will be followed by ‘Creativity as a Catalyst for Social Change,’ an Artist Talk and Climate March Workshop with ‘LESS IS MORE’ featured artists, MEGGS, Askew One, Jessie and Katey, Patrick Ethen, and Thing Thing’s Rachel Mulder and Simon Anton on Saturday, August 11 from 1 - 4 PM. First Amendment Gallery is located at the intersection of 6th and Howard St. in Downtown San Francisco.  The exhibition is free and open to the public.
