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: 

  1.  through the arts and humanities, to investigate environmental issues honoring the experiences, aesthetics, and struggles embedded in these topics, and
  2. 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.
