Spotlight on Care: Restorative Relationships with More-Than-Human Persons
Hosted by The Commons, the IPSR Center for Compassionate and Sustainable Communities, and the Spencer Museum of Art, and the Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity; with support from the Center for Faculty Development and Mentoring, the Center for Teaching Excellence, and the Environmental Studies Program.
This session features an opportunity to reflect, in community, on ongoing events surrounding the Common Work of Art, Native Hosts, by Cheyenne & Arapaho artist Hock E Aye Vi Edgar Heap of Birds.
Additionally, we will host an exercise in connecting to place, by examining ‘species loneliness,’ an idea described by Robin Wall Kimmerer in Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants. Through experiencing for ourselves, we will explore how we might know a species better.
