CONDUIT as a method of transmitting energy, and referring to a one year project of engagement with the plantings and architecture of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Public Park and its surrounding communities
The Art is Land Network (AILN) is hosting a concluding Roundtable for CONDUIT. In furtherance to the initial conversation on Finding Nature in Public Spaces, a second panel of speakers will continue the dialogue examining ideas on place-making and connection through engagement with and stewardship of the land. AILN will explore how CONDUIT and our other speakers projects further inform the connections that human beings subconsciously seek with the rest of life.
Please join us for the conversation:
