PLACEHOLDER: An Unconventional Book Club.

August 27, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm MDT

How can we characterize our relationship to the land we live in? Join us for an informal conversation facilitated by members of d.talks. Through the lens of our city, together we will investigate this question, as we consider how our connection to the land is revealed through urban practices of land use, planning, and design. The title, Among All These Tundras, is drawn from the poem “My Home is in My Heart,” by the Sámi poet Nils-Aslak Valkeapää—or Áillohaš, in Sámi. Our conversation will take this poem as a starting point to reflect on these questions. You are welcome to bring a reading or object that manifests your relationship with the land.
