the NETWORK project: A Dialogue on Building Resilience in our Nature Bodies

June 25, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 5:00 pm PDT

$5 (In-Person and Streaming)

An embodied dialogue about nature, humans, and our interconnection.

The panelists include Theresa Harlan, Ken Otter, Diane Butler, and Claire Peaslee, with a movement score offered from Jennifer Monson/iLAND. The dialogue will be moderated by Krista DeNio, Artistic Director of MovingGround. 

The NETWORK project, created by MovingGround is inspired by ecological systems of communication, resource-sharing and survival employed in tree communities, to develop tools for resilient community building. Considering the ongoing climate crisis, how can all beings–trees, land, animals, and humans–survive and thrive together? 

This conversation will bring together local and non-local experts who have sustained relationships with researching and learning together with the natural world, through embodied work and practices. 

Our conversation will include questions like:  How are we in relationship with the land where we live now and where we originated? How do we connect or work with nature?  How are we creating sustainability through our models of living? What kinds of support do our communities need for resilient infrastructure for surviving and thriving, together in the face of climate and other disasters?

Our time together will include a dialogue, embodied activities, and a brief screening of a video featuring the NETWORK project’s premiere at Djerassi Resident Artists Program in the Santa Cruz mountains, July 2022.
