SCP Arts Workshops and Discussions


SCP Arts collaborates with local artists, writers, and researchers to explore the social and ecological dimensions of human and environmental interactions.


 Discussion:  Environmental Justice and Narrative

Environmental Justice and Narrative

Explore how narrative can be a powerful lens to understand systemic injustice and reimagine an environmentally just future.  Shannon Gibney, award-winning author, educator, and activist, and Shalini Gupta, environmental policy researcher, writer, and advocate, join University of St. Thomas faculty Olga Herrera (English), Todd Lawrence (English), Ande Nesmith (Social Work), Chip Small (Environmental Science), and Maria Dahmus (Sustainable Communities Partnership) to delve into the intersection of environmental justice and narrative.
