"Memory Flow: Narratives of Land, Water and Displacement" art and action conference

WHAT: "Memory Flow: Narratives of Land, Water and Displacement" conference.
WHERE: Deerfield Business Center, 110 N. Hillside Rd. South Deerfield, MA
WHEN: April 28th 10am-5pm & 29th 10am-3pm

The event is hosted by activist from Visioning B.E.A.R Intertribal Coalition and artist from Metonymy Collective (based in Northampton).

We will interweave workshops and artistic performances which explore the history, present and future of land, water and displacement in the Northeast.

The art exhibitions and performances will specifically focus on the creation of the Quabbin Reservior (the source of Boston's drinking water) and on the memories of displacement, environmental destruction, and indigenous genocide hidden under its surface.

At the end of the conference, art and discussion will blend together and lead to a "Land, Water and People Plan of Remembrance and Action."
