  • Eco Poca (Ecopocalypse) エコポカ

    Eco Poca is a visual art, eco-fashion, and performance art exhibit creating a “Ku-kan,” a space to experience the intersection of two alternate realities — a nuclear apocalypse, vs an advanced eco-society. The exhibit and panel discussion will address our ecological crisis, including the ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster, while remembering and sharing our ancestors’ eco-wisdom and connection to nature. Art and Story-telling are powerful tools to reflect on the turmoil our planet is experiencing; we hope to transmute this global crisis by collectively envisioning and co-creating our eco-future.

    About Boondock Squad

    "Boondocks" comes from the Tagalog “bundók”, meaning mountains. When invaders clashed with guerrillas along mountains during the Filipino-American war, they adopted the word and defined it as outlying or uncivilized areas. Boondock Squad plays hip-hop and rock for the people of the boondocks: the masses and outliers.
