A Time for Rest

I feel guilty when my friends at the University of Minnesota ask about homework or midterms and I admit that I’m actually spending the next day paddling down the Mississippi River or learning about food justice on a farm.

Are you an artist? Are trees art?

Hacking the system: growing roots and cultivating connectivity

Art in social justice spaces can change perspectives and guide interactions with the space. Entering the Water Protector camp, I was immediately drawn to the large, colorful banners and installations. Signs read “Check your ego here” and “Honor the treaty,” and fabric strips were woven through tree branches. There is a power and energy in being surrounded by things that people have made.
