Occuring on June 15-16 in Good Life Garden and public spaces around South Williamsburg/Bushwick, Entre Muchos Mundos: poetic translation for researching urban environments is a two-day gathering of Latin American artists-scholars and local community leaders to share embodiment-based and grassroot-driven methods for engaging with environmental justice issues. With a particular focus on translation, mapping, and moving boundaries, Entre Muchos Mundos builds upon three years of Spanish iLANDing workshops, organized in collaboration with El Puente, a community human and environmental rights organization. Entre Muchos Mundos is part of iLAND in Dialogue, a series of informal gathering initiated in 2021 to discuss themes and concepts emerging from the iLANDing methodology.
Entre Muchos Mundos begins at the LaGuardia Playground with an Environmental Justice Walk, led by young community leaders from El Puente, followed by two embodied research workshops at the Good Life Garden in Bushwick. The event culminates in the celebration of the Spanish translation of the “Field Guide to iLANDing,” a compilation of over 70 scores from a decade of collaborative research and symposia published by 53rd State Press and translated by Alejandra Martorell and Alex Viteri Arturo.
See below for the full schedule of the event. The workshops will be conducted in both Spanish and English. For more information, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
