Musician and Storyteller Christopher Kavi Carbone has been sharing his passion for the arts, the earth, and their interconnectedness with nature and our own selves through the power of music and self-expression in the Newport and Aquidneck Island area for the past 10 years.  Through music, song and storytelling, Carbone aims to inspire all as to how important our connection is to the earth and all of nature.

“It is important to remember that human beings are part of nature and that the earth is our home,” Carbone says. “When we use the arts to help us remember this, it becomes a live relationship.”

Back in College, Carbone became involved with theater and the arts and helped to create after-school creative arts programs at the elementary level in Hartford, CT. Ever since then, with further training and working in Italy and New York City, Carbone has continued to share the arts and his passion as an expressive arts facilitator with families. Carbone knows he can make a difference.

“We need to wake up every day and know it is the little things that can make a difference for our earth, our home,” Carbone says. “It is easy for us to forget in our modern society that we are a part of this earth and ecosystem.  I have seen choices from one person, one family, one community that all make a difference in the way we live with the earth and each other.”

Carbone and his wife Katherine share a personal mission to share the arts as a vehicle for personal and group enrichment and transformation, Carbone says. He will be sharing this belief with families at the Energy Independence Day event on Sunday, July 11 from 1-4 p.m. under the wind turbine at 55 John Clarke Rd. in Middletown, RI.  Carbone will be making “energy shakers” out of recycled materials with the children at 2:30 followed by a family-friendly music and song jam at 3:00.
