These systems are failing | April 12, 2017 – Moby, Gene Baur, Allison Argo, The Last Pig


Moby: Are You Lost in the World Like Me?

Hi everyone,

Devoted followers of Moby might have noticed that he stopped touring and has committed much of his time to Animal Rights. Additionally, he has been quite outspoken on the environment and our current political situation. One of his recent music videos was nominated for a Webby Award. Beyond the animation, his message names something many of us recognize: “These systems are failing.” How many of us are struggling to come to terms with a deep sense of alienation amidst countless profound uncertainties, challenges, atrocities, injustices and insecurities in this world? Through his music, Moby asks us, “Are You Lost in the World Like Me?

Next Wednesday, April 12, Moby will be making a very rare appearance in Orange County, joined by Gene Baur of Farm Sanctuary, and filmmaker, Allison Argo — plus a screening of her latest documentary, The Last Pig. This is going to be a truly amazing event!

Please join us for Critical Conversations at Soka – Vegan Meat-Up with Moby, A Safe Space for the Curious Carnivore — buy tickets here.

Hi everyone,

Wednesday, April 12, 7:00pm, Soka Performing Arts Center Critical Conversations presents: Vegan Meat-Up — A Safe Space for the Curious Carnivore.
Living Ubuntu is thrilled to be a partner. This event will open with a musical performance by Moby, then, for the onstage conversation, he will be joined by Farm Sanctuary’s founder, Gene Baur, Emmy-winning filmmaker, Allison Argo, and moderator Jaime Nack. Allison’s most recent film, The Last Pig, will screen afterward. Watch the film trailer here.

The idea for this event came after reading the many articles and blog posts written by former pig farmer, Bob Comis. His poignant story and deep honesty gripped me and I found myself eagerly awaiting the 2017 film premiere. I envisioned an event in the Soka PAC much like what is to occur on April 12. My first conversation about the idea was almost a year ago now, and so much of this event has felt as if it magically just came together. I am genuinely extremely excited that this event did indeed come to fruition, and finally, it is almost here.

I want to personally invite you to please join me  — get tickets here.

April has lots to offer — see the full calendar of upcoming events below.
