Interdisciplinary artist Clark Lunberry will talk about creating site-specific poetry installations and introduce a new work for the UGA campus.

His large-scale poems placed on water and windows include recent installations in Oxford, England; Paris, France; Toronto, Canada; Tokyo and Hiroshima, Japan; and Stanford University.

Lunberry will create a temporary installation at Lake Herrick, a prominent feature within Oconee Forest Park, which serves as a living laboratory for research in the natural and social sciences.

Introductory Community Rights Workshop

Introductory Community Rights Workshop
Wednesday, October 25 from 6 – 9 PM
State Botanical Garden of Georgia, The Gardenside Room
Free registration:

A workshop led by activist Paul Cienfuegos that introduces to Athens the powerful strategies and history of the Community Rights Movement. Since 1999, the Community Rights Movement has helped hundreds of communities pass locally-enforceable laws that promote rights of nature, such as the right of ecosystems to flourish and evolve, democratic rights, such as the right of local community to self-government, and workers’ rights, such as the right to living wages. First introduced to the U.S. by the Community Rights Movement, the “rights of nature” are radical, new laws that grant natural entities, such as rivers, legal personhood, allowing nature for the first time to be represented in court and to effectively fight corporate and governmental threats. Limited spaces are available.

Affiliated with the “Alliance for Arts + Rights of Nature” project funded by an a2ru Student Challenge Grant with additional support from Ideas for Creative Exploration (ICE), Watershed UGA, and the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts a2ru Research Cluster.

ICE-Vision: Dogville

ICE-Vision: Dogville (Lars Von Trier, 2004)
Wednesday, October 18 at 6:30 PM
Lamar Dodd School Building, Room S150

A barren soundstage is stylishly utilized to create a minimalist small-town setting in which a mysterious woman named Grace (Nicole Kidman) hides from the criminals who pursue her. The town is two-faced and offers to harbor Grace as long as she can make it worth their effort, so Grace works hard under the employ of various townspeople to win their favor. Tensions flare, however, and Grace’s status as a helpless outsider provokes vicious contempt and abuse from the citizens of Dogville.

The return of ICE-Vision!
