Connections: The Art and Science of Symbiosis

Deadline September 05, 2022

This is a 4-night workshop/residency experience with guided field trips in the morning, led by Diana Six, Symbiologist and Professor of Forest Entomology/Pathology.

Each field trip is followed by afternoons of open studio time to creatively interpret and respond to what you experienced in the medium of your choice.

These lessons of connection in nature are designed to not only introduce artists to new ways of seeing, but also to better understand why all life depends on networks of support. Field and studio experiences will include exploring symbioses from microbes to forests.

PLAYA’s campus includes cabins and studios nestled against the edge of Winter Rim on one side and the wide-open playa on the other. This rural setting is a natural incubator for creative breakthroughs and personal growth.
