The Community Conversations series by Instar Lodge visits Art Omi for a walking conversation about women, nature, art, and more. Instar Lodge's Community Conversations are a free and informal exploration of ideas, which encourage the public to enjoy company while engaging in experiential learning through dialogue. Instar Lodge's Community Conversations have been held or are forthcoming at Hawthorne Valley Farm, Olana State Historic Site, the W.E.B. DuBois National Historic Site, and other significant sites in the region. Instar Lodge is a center for the arts based in Germantown, NY. The mission of Instar Lodge is to share a beautiful space rooted in a rich history of compassion, that inspires creativity, courage and community through the arts.

This Community Conversation will probe the following questions: What is and has been the role of women to nature? How has religion acted as a violent sword of oppression to nature? How has gender played a role in Land Art? The conversation will be informed by Instar Lodge's May Reading List, which features the following titles: The Woman's Bible by Elizabeth Cady Stanton; Made From This Earth: American Women and Nature (Gender and American Culture) by Vera Norwood; Witches, Midwives, and Nurses: A History of Women Healers by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English; Shaker Medicinal Herbs: A Compendium of History, Lore, and Uses by Amy Bess Miller; Heresies #13 Feminism & Ecology and essay Earth Movers: Quaking up Land Art’s Legacy of Feminism by Nancy Thebaut and L. Elizabeth Upper.

Participation is free and open to all, but RSVP is encouraged. To RSVP, send an email to info@instarlodge.com. To learn more about Instar Lodge, visit instarlodge.com.
