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

Saturday, March 28, 2009

9:30am – 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, NY

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.

Through the iLAB residency program, iLAND facilitates opportunities for movement-based artists, biologists, architects, geographers, acoustic ecologists, urban planers, visual artists, and other natural and social scientists to conceive, design, and explore a working collaboration that engages the built environment of New York City and the habitats, phenomenon, and systems it shares.
