Decolonizing Nature has become an urgent priority if we are to progress toward a just and sustainable Earth for all living beings. How do we resist further ecological devastation? How do we achieve resilience in times of stress? How do we revitalize affected ecological habitats and communities? The University of New Mexico will host an interdisciplinary environmental justice public forum “Decolonizing Nature: Resistance, Resilience, Revitalization.”
The conference will bring to Albuquerque thirty-three speakers from the fields of art, architecture, humanities, religion, science, and grassroots activists from across the US and from Mexico, Canada and Ecuador. The gathering will foster discussions on integration of knowledge across disciplines, practices across cultures, and social-environmental movements across geographies.
In conjunction with the conference, 516 ARTS will host a companion exhibition “Decolonizing Nature” from April 15 through 29; the University of New Mexico Art Museum will host a one-day film screening on April 18; and on Earth Day, April 22, the participants will have the opportunity to experience “Abrazos: A Community Celebration of Environmental Justice” at the Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge.
