Morning Session: Land and Stewardship
NATIONAL UNDERGROUND RAILROAD FREEDOM CENTER: 50 East Freedom Way, Cincinnati, OH
Centering on earth-based themes—land, waterways, trees—these conversations consider histories of land, land use, and the wisdom that can be gleaned from prolific natural histories, in which human culture has played a complicated role.
Afternoon Session: Borders and Exchange
CONTEMPORARY ARTS CENTER: 44 East 6th Street, Cincinnati OH
The border between the United States and Mexico has become increasingly contentious in recent years, symbolizing the inequities intensifying over our dwindling natural resources. Simultaneously, the concept of borders plays an outsized role in the human psyche, defining—often arbitrarily and harmfully—boundaries between not only nations but cultures, genders, species, and generative forms of shared knowledge between these entities.
