EPN Signature Earth Day Event - April 19, 2023
Tuesday, April 04th, 2023
Art, agriculture, and advancing the relationship of Black people on land will be presented by the Environmental Professionals Network on April 19. This free event will be held at The Fawcett Center at Ohio State.
At 6 p.m. join Brotherhood(hood) Dance! (Orlando Zane Hunter Jr. and Ricarrdo Valentine) for a free performance integrating African diasporic dance with agricultural technology – encouraging and influencing Black growers’ relationship with land and building of community resilience through agricultural practices.
Following the dance performance, Dr. Tiffany Bourgeois, assistant professor of Arts Management at Ohio State, will relate Black on Earth to her scholarship, practice of growing food, and use of creative inquiries into art, racial justice, agriculture, and the creation of green community spaces. Jera Oliver and Adrienne Williams, co-founders of the Growing and Growth Collective, will join Dr. Bourgeois on stage for a conversation about connecting the arts, agriculture, and community using culturally relevant and evidence-based programming.
