Metamorphosis Cleveland: Climate. Justice. Equity. Sustainability.
The Metamorphosis Cleveland contest and celebratory event is a cocurricular activity taking place April 20, 2023. The themes of Metamorphosis Cleveland include climate, justice, equity and sustainability and the connections between these issues. Metamorphosis Cleveland was first held in spring 2019 with a theme of “a ravaged river revitalized and 50 years of change,” recognizing the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Cuyahoga River fire.
Early in the Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) Spring 2023 semester, the Metamorphosis Cleveland team will launch a collegewide call for submissions, asking students to interpret a sustainability-related change — or metamorphosis — that is meaningful to them. Submissions can call attention to positive or negative changes.
Students can choose to enter one of five categories:
- Creative Writing: Poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction
- Visual: Paintings, posters, sculptures, photographs, collage
- Performance: Short plays, spoken word poetry, songs, dance
- Media: Films, websites, social media campaigns, slideshows, board games
- Academic: Research posters, PowerPoint presentations, academic papers and projects
