About Mary DeMocker

Mary has reveled in an artistic life, performing harp, dressing sets for NYC film productions, and now using the arts to mobilize for climate justice. A National Endowment for the Arts grant recipient, Mary may be the first harpist to perform in both The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, where she worked with composer John Cage, and the subway stop under Bloomingdales. (Learn more about Mary’s harp teaching.)

Mary studied at Eastman School of Music and University of Oregon’s School of Music and has performed widely, including solo appearances at major music festivals. She toured with the original interactive musical “The Incredible Earth Circus” in schools for Earth Day 1990, and was later commissioned to write six children’s plays, three of which are still regularly performed across the U.S. and abroad. In 2013, Mary co-founded Eugene’s chapter of the international climate action group 350.org and became creative director, specializing in interactive art protests.

Mary’s writing has appeared in The Sun, EcoWatch, Common Dreams, Mothering.com, Spirituality & Health, Oregon Quarterly, and ISLE (Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment). She lives in Oregon with her family.
