Join us at our BIPOC open mic: Living in Kinship, reestablishing our connection with the land. This event intends to combine science and art by exploring how we connect with this land (i.e., O'odham land) through our experiences and backgrounds. We encourage the public to build their performances seeing our desert surroundings as a diverse ecosystem full of life and cultural history.

We will begin with a short conversation about how pop culture and literature have shaped our perceptions of desert ecosystems with Celina Osuna, P.h.D. Later, we will explore these topics through our different lenses and experiences in the BIPOC open mic.

This is a Free all ages event, catered by the Rez, An Ubran Eatery.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

This event is brought to you by Voices For Science, part of the the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and Palabras Bilingual Bookstore
