Artist and educator Cecilia Ramon, in partnership with the DAI and the Office of Sustainability at UMD, offers Terrain: The Art of Localizing. The two-day symposium will address intersections between ecology, art and design based on systems thinking, opening new ways to co-exist with the living world. The goal is to explore the transformative power of art-making and nature-based design to re-imagine our world at a time of systemic change. Ramon will be joined by an interdisciplinary teaching team comprised of David Sanchez-Ruano, PhD in Design, University of Dundee, UK and Rachel Toczydlowski, PhD Candidate in Botany, University of Wisconsin-Madison. Participatory and inclusive, every session will dedicate time to theory, experimentation, hands-on art-making and sharing conclusions. The artist is supported by an Arrowhead Regional Arts Council grant. The symposium is free but registration is required. Can’t make the two-day symposium? Please drop in Saturday evening for a free, one-hour Community Forum at the Lincoln Center for Arts Education 7-8pm.
