About the event

“Place” is not a neutral concept. It is simultaneously a physical, social and metaphysical location and one that is inherently political. To varying degrees, we all shape and are shaped by the places we inhabit.  During this session, we will explore what place means to us.

Join us for this 1-hour webinar to explore the ways in which we make, take and keep place.

In this webinar, we’ll explore the following themes as it relates to place:

  • Belonging
  • Inter-being
  • Justice
  • Healing
  • Liberation
