Land and Accessible Futures: Stories of Resistance and Survival is composed of two separate events, an online panel and an online exhibition, that will address the topic of Land and accessible futures by bringing together artists, educators, activists, and researchers – aka storytellers – from all over the Earth; from Turtle Island to Palestine, from Jordan to Lebanon, from Egypt to Tunisia and Iraq. Our storytellers, grounded in the lived realities of the Land from which they speak, will take us through stories of survival, resistance, and longing for liveable futures.
