Speaker Series: Art as Story through an Indigenous Lens
Link for More Info
The Yestermorrow Speaker Series is a free offering that has traditionally focused on design/build, craftsmanship, and interesting ideas & concepts related to sustainability. This fall, we are highlighting speakers & organizations that seek to "re-design/build" communities, structures, and systems for the health of people & the planet. Join us Wednesday nights, 7PM EST on Facebook Live or tune in on Zoom.

In order to understand the world today and prepare for the future, we must also know and understand the past. Judy Dow, Abenaki artist & educator, uses art to tell stories rooted in the geologic and historical context of land, the people who live on it, and the ways that they interact. Judy has been teaching for 30 years and in the past 10-15 has worked with youth to tell important stories through Abenaki traditions, crafts, and skills. From middle school math lessons, to high schoolers helping shape how land is used in Brattleboro, the art & stories Judy will share offer a new lens for considering the world around us.
