Interview: Michael Johnson-Chase

Michael Johnson-ChaseMichael Johnson-Chase is a former theatre professor, international program director at the Lark Play Development Center, producer and writer. After a stint as a solar installer, he is currently developing Green Collar Job training programs at Solar One, an environmentally focused arts and education center in NYC soon to feature New York City’s first net zero carbon classroom and performance facility.

In this interview, Michael talks with us about how he came to be involved in Green technologies, the potential for social change and new narratives at the intersection of the arts and environmentally sound design, and the plans for New York’s first net-zero carbon building.

Note: Michael has requested that we correct a misstatement in this interview: at 14:45, the ARRA 2009 funding mentioned as being available for weatherization is incorrect — the correct sum is five billion dollars.
