Tevyn East

Tevyn East is a faith-led artist addressing ecological issues. East’s work includes “Leaps and Bounds,” a one woman show about the intersections of faith, ecology, and our economic systems; the Carnival de Resistance, an arts-based touring eco-village demonstration project and education and outreach initiative that produces annual residencies in different parts of the United States; and the creation of Holy Fool Arts, East’s organization that “seeks to speak prophetically to the failings of our current economic and ecological paradigm and call all into the emerging paradigm of sufficiency and solidarity, cooperation and creative embodiment.”

She is the recipient of the 2017 Rubem Alves Award for Theopoetics.
