***This event has been rescheduled from Oct 21*** to Wednesday, Nov 11th, 6-8 p.m. The Facebook event and LVN registration page have also been updated.
In a divisive election year that’s posed one challenge after another, it’s more important than ever for residents of rural and urban places to discover common ground. To that purpose, Local Voices Network (LVN) is collaborating with Wormfarm and Rural Urban FLOW, a network of cultural and agricultural producers in Milwaukee and Sauk County, to have conversations along the rural-urban continuum.
Next up is Dasha Kelly's About That: FLOW on Wednesday, Nov 11th, 6-8 p.m. Skylines, tree lines. Bus lines and county line roads. When did "rural" and "urban" become a "divide?" What happens to expectations and our ideas about community when we flow between rural and urban spaces? For Black, Brown and Indigenous folks, in particular, what can your rural/urban code switching teach us all about the work yet to be done?
About That: FLOW was prompted by artworks embedded in the working lands of Sauk County during the Farm/Art DTour, some of which were created by artists from Milwaukee. Dasha Kelly Hamilton will introduce conversation "kickstarters," but where the discussion goes from there depends on what you have to say ABOUT THAT. Click here to register.
