Flow Tuscaloosa Symposium
April 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join the Collaborative Arts Research Initiative for a conversation with artists and writers whose work explores themes of southern history, landscape, and the environment. The artists are part of the CARI-sponsored Flow Tuscaloosa project, led by Fellows Jamey Grimes and Julia Brock and the Selvage Collective (Teresa Bramlette Reeves, Kirstie Tepper, and Brock). The project recognizes the successful restoration of Hurricane Creek, a Tuscaloosa natural resource, as inspiration to ignite action to protect the resources of the Black Warrior River watershed, and bring attention to environmental justice efforts in West Alabama. Drawing from expressive and visual art as a stimulus for dialogue, engagement, and play, our work nurtures local commitment to environmental stewardship through arts-based workshops that culminate with a community lantern and light sculpture parade and a curated exhibition.
