You are invited to a symposium and art exhibition during this free, full-day interdisciplinary summit to promote dialogue on the interplay of environmentalism, social justice, the arts, and community identity. The program will assemble scholars, activists, educators, and civic leaders working on environmental justice issues to explore the politics of our basic environmental needs and the consequences of historical environmental racism on our local communities, as well as the role of the land itself as a lasting monument to these injustices and others. CCE will participate in a panel discussion about water protection, featuring apprentice artist Robert Lugo. The event is cosponsored by Artspace and the Yale University Art Gallery. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
