Beauty Instead of Ashes: Launching the Alain Locke Institute

by Jeffrey C. Stewart

On the 12th December 2020

As part of Nature as Infrastructure - A proposition by The Winter Office. 

How did we get here? How do we get out of here? Who has been here before? In a wide ranging presentation, Stewart will use the Harlem Renaissance - the first modern transnational renaissance - as a transponder to guide us in a discussion about a post-consumer world economy ushered in by COVID 19, our continued obsession with killing one another, and the earth.
