December 1, 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST
Welcome to a hot take on book clubs called [POLLEN]. This is an invitation to weekly bite sized explorations (all 30 minutes or less) of all the dope things that pollinate conservation in our lives. We’re talking about challenging the ideas of “pristine” forests and sci-fi queerness all through forms of IGTV, art, music, op-eds, poetry, and more. These are explorations to spark conversation, awe, joy, creativity, and pleasure. Join other DDCSP alum as awe fumble through and cross-pollinate ways conservation weaves through our world and our future world(s). [register]
