Ground is shared; upholding relationships that oblige a negotiation first with the seen, felt, tangible world. Yet, ground is largely concealed underfoot, in the contours of racist policy, legal title and extractive land-use. Through the lens of reconciliation, we seek expressions of interest for those working to expand the meaning of ground - whether urban, rural or transitional; including but not limited to place names, preservation values, botanical vocabulary, ancestral knowledge, invisible narratives and archaeological surveys. The most pressing question for us is: Where do we stand?


All Mobile Workshops will take place on Saturday, November 19, 2022 between 2-5pm EST. The Ground Mobile Workshop will be leaving Higgins Hall at 1:30pm to Greenpoint, Brooklyn and is organized in collaboration with the Newtown Creek Alliance. Be sure to indicate which Mobile Workshop you’d like to attend on your Eventbrite ticket registration form.
