Terra Incognita Art Series: Artists Exploring our New Ecological Epoch
This artist-led workshop and event series showcases a range of expressions that explore the relationships between humans and the world they inhabit. Our mission is twofold:
- through the arts and humanities, to investigate environmental issues honoring the experiences, aesthetics, and struggles embedded in these topics, and
- bring people together with diverse, but interconnected, interests and identities.
As we face a new epoch of environmental complexity, we need to encourage multidisciplinarity, a broader approach to environmental studies and the arts, and supportive learning communities.

Over the semester, Terra Incognita is working on several cross-disciplinary projects, including becoming-Botanicals (http://becoming-botanicals.com/submissions/), Displaced Horizons, and Garden for a Changing Climate. We are meeting regularly to discuss research-creation and the role of art in the academic forms of knowledge production. We are also working together to support the development of works-in-progress. If you are interested in coming to our workshops and meetings, please send us an email!
