iLAND Symposium: March 28, 2009

iLAND, the Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Art, Nature, and Dance, will hold its first symposium this Saturday, March 28th, at the New School for Liberal Arts. The event is free and all are welcome. More information is below and on the symposium site.

I learned about iLAND in early February and was drawn to the organization’s cross-disciplinary approach, especially because of my own interest in the connections between dance and environmental issues. Based on the program lineup, it seems like the symposium will be an engaging, informative event.

iLAND Symposium
Connecting to the Urban Environment: Creating embodied and relational approaches to environmental awareness

Saturday, March 28, 2009
9:30 AM – 1 PM (no charge, registration opens at 9 AM)
Refreshments will be served

Hosted by the Eugene Lang College
The New School for Liberal Arts
6 East 16th Street, New York City
Room #D1009 (auditorium)

Connecting to the Urban Environment, iLAND’s first annual symposium, will address issues emanating from the creative collaborations of past iLAB residencies. iLAB alumni will be paired with representatives from environmental organizations who are actively designing new relationships to urban space. Presentations will share the results of grappling with the project of finding shared language and processes across the arts and sciences while centering dance and the body as the mediator and resource for experience, imagination and knowing. The symposium will include oral and media presentations, workshops, and small-group discussions.
