Complicating Conversations

Complicating Conversations between Disability Justice and Eco-justice in the AZ Borderlands is a multidisciplinary project using poetry, prose and paintings to describe artist Naomi Ortiz’ personal struggle to bear witness to climate-change and support the protection of the borderlands. Using a lens of disability justice from the artist’s lived experience as the daughter of formerly undocumented, indigenous and multiracial peoples, a series of interactive workshops and discussions will be facilitated by Ortiz to contemplate climate change and the ways disability justice, eco-justice and immigration within the borderlands are in conversation with one another.
