This session features two presentations:
The Development of Creek College; Notes from the Field
Creek College is a project bridging art and environmental conservation. We offer a range of art classes and experiences in exchange for aid in the restoration of watersheds. Art participation becomes a catalyst for stewardship. At OE we ask, how can artists make the broadest impact in encouraging personal engagement with sustainable practices? Contemplating the role of art in both concept and practice of sustainability, we will highlight successes and failures that have aided us along the way.
Radicle Engagement: Seeds, Art and Storytelling
Katerie Gladdys and Anna Prizzia
Seeds are agents of exchange and expressions of community, culture and place. Art give us metaphors to better understand and connect with societal issues. Katerie Gladdys and Anna Prizzia. will discuss their experiences with “Seed Cabinet,” an interactive exhibition of images, stories, seeds, and community food systems. We will then facilitate a discussion of how storytelling can inspire the public to cultivate a personal relationship with local agriculture.
