Approaching an Exchange: Albuquerque

Approaching an Exchange: Albuquerque
Potentising elements of our lives, cultures and times

A collaborative project by Claire Long and Anna Keleher

An inter-temporal “Exchange” initiated in Dartmoor National Park, England now comes to New Mexico! Through the idea of exchange, the participatory project presses against boundaries of time and preconceptions of past and present peoples and cultures.

Claire Long (New Mexico) and Anna Keleher (Devon, UK) and  have been collaborating since October, 2007.

Today details were finalized on an upcoming 3 day summer camp that I will be co-facilitating with Roberta Salazar, executive director of Rivers and Birds. The camp will explore sustainability and ecology through art, games and other hands on projects. If you have kids who might be interested in attending, please call us at 575-776-5200 to reserve a place by June 25th, 2009.
