Tasha Diamant, M.Ed.
Earth Day Vulnerability Vigil, April 22, 2014

Associate faculty member Tasha Diamant (BAPC, ISC) holds a Human Body Project Vulnerability Vigil at least once a month. This is the 30th Vulnerability Vigil since January 2012.

Her work is a gesture, a ritual, a practice... street performance, non-violent direct action, activism... a wake-up call... an outlet for pain and rage...

In performance, the Human Body Project has been called "the most relevant and powerful work at the fringe."

What it looks like:
Tasha works in the area of vulnerability. One way she does this in her ongoing project is to show up naked on the street at least once a month to share vulnerability with her audience and create a space for vulnerability. She holds a sign in front of her as a gesture of gentleness to those deeply affronted by public nudity.

The sign:
The extinction symbol is on the sign. extinctionsymbol.info

Tasha invites you to join her. She is very grateful when people do. Those who join her can be as dressed or undressed as they choose.
