Event Details

Nina travels to some of the most environmentally impacted, geographically distant, and economically important places on the globe where she researches how the natural environment is changing through human-centered activities. This presentation weaves together unlikely associations between piles of rocks, military secrets, climate change, obsolete communication technology, remote landscapes, meteorites, and the need for curiosity. It is equal parts travel log, artist talk, poetic narrative, and a scrutiny of assumptions about the North. There will be time for Q & A afterwards. Let this time with Nina make you more curious, inspired, and empowered to weave together your passions, creative projects, and professional paths.

Limited spots are available for a 30-minute private session with Nina, to be scheduled in the days after her presentation. She would love to talk with people who are using their art to engage with justice movements – environmental, social, racial, economic. Private session participants will share their work with Nina (1-2 projects) for the first 10 minutes, followed by conversation and feedback. She can help people navigate the shared realm of art and activism, and move their projects into a more impactful trajectory.
