Book Reading and Signing: Refugees, Rivers and Rebels with Renny Golden

October 19

6 pm

This presentation will feature poets Sen. Bill O’Neill, Margaret Randall, Damien Flores and Renny Golden.

Renny Golden’s The Music of Her Rivers pays homage to the Rio Grande and Illinois Rivers. Sharp-eyed and empathetic, Golden serves as a witness, documenting place, history, and people, especially those left voiceless due to violence or discrimination—from the refugee border crossers of the Rio Grande to the Irish immigrants and former slaves struggling to build lives in Chicago in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

This event is free and open to the public. 

La Canoa: At Intersection of Cultural Heritage and Climate Change: A Call to Action

October 19

2 pm – 4 pm

Please join Theresa Cárdenas as she discusses climate change and how it has become one of the most significant and fastest growing threats to people and their cultural heritage worldwide. In particular, Cárdenas will talk about the historic impact of climate change on cultural heritage in New Mexico. The impacts of climate change are damaging infrastructure, ecosystems, and social systems that provide essential benefits and quality of life to communities. What does this mean for our lands and peoples of New Mexico? Is New Mexico prepared to face the unprecedented, systemic threat to people and their cultural heritage? Creating bridges and cooperation between experts and decision makers involved in the sectors of heritage, culture, and climate science is important to inspire and stimulate new approaches to taking climate action.

This is a FREE event OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
