Deconstructing the Boundaries

This program was the first symposium in a multi-year collaboration between Indigo Arts Alliance and Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Indigo Arts Alliance assembled a curated panel of thought leaders and workshop presenters to discuss how Black and Brown communities have always held spiritual, traditional, and cultural relationships to the land. Artists from various disciplines hosted conversations, demonstrations and interactive workshops.

The Land Fights Back

Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens | July 20, 2024!

This year’s 2024 symposium and public art commissions, will focus on environmental justice in urban and rural spaces and why it is critical that Black and Brown experiences and knowledge be centered. The work will unpack methods of reparative justice and challenge systems in place today. Witnessing through the lens of scholars, artists, historians and members of our community, we will honor our collective wisdom and forge new ways to be in harmony with the land known as Maine and beyond. Participants will have an opportunity to learn actionable steps that they can take to help create a better world.
