Working together to stimulate individual, community and planetary wellness.

Temple University Ambler Campus

Taking place on the idyllic outdoor and indoor spaces of the Temple University Ambler Campus and Ambler Arboretum, this event is neither an exhibition nor a performance. It is an invitation to embrace creativity, dialogue, and interdisciplinary collaboration in a day-long event that makes visible our interdependence and responsibility for the health of our communities and planet.  

GET OUTSIDE of: your boxes, your ways of thinking and doing, your routines, and connect to generate new ideas for challenging times.  

(Re)Charge will include musical performances, dance performances, art installations, interactive art activities that are fun for all ages, and interactive sculptures.   

Look below for lineup of artists, event registration, and transportation details.

In the spirit of Arbor Day, guests are asked to bring a bag lunch and reusable water bottle. We want to leave the Arboretum as clean as we found it and produce as little waste as possible.  

This event is Rain or Shine. Alternative indoor spaces are preemptively scheduled.  

Special thanks to Temple University Ambler Campus, Temple Ambler Arboretum, and Temple Ambler Field Station for hosting this special event.
