I love iland!

What are you doing next weekend?
Learning about mushrooms? Getting your hands and mind dirty in workshops about the urban environment? Me too!

Join the brilliant and provocative folks at iLAND as they offer their super affordable ($10-20 sliding!) Symposium "Connecting to the Urban Environment - Creating embodied and relational approaches to environmental awareness"

This titillating event will "pursue issues emanating from creative collaborations across New York City that are actively designing new relationships to public space. A keynote address by the seminal landscape artist Mary Miss will address collaboration through the “City as Living Lab” project. Presentations and a panel by choreographer Jennifer Monson, iLAB residency artists of Strataspore and the New School's sTEM project will conclude Friday's event."
