Enrollment is now open for the Swamp Ecologies: Weeklong Intensive and Symposium of the Knight Foundation Art + Research Center!

This summer, ICA-Miami’s Knight Foundation Art + Research Center presents a weeklong seminar series on Swamp Ecologies led by Zachary Caple, Christy Gast, and Camila Marambio who will offer scholarly and artistic approaches that engage the ecological landscapes and biodiversity of the Everglades and the broader ecosystems of Florida. These seminars will include a day-long excursion for students to conduct on the ground fieldwork in the Florida mangroves. This program will be concluded by a daylong symposium open to the public with scholarly talks by scholars including Dr. Zachary Caple, Dr. Jessica Cattelino, and Dr. Laura Ogden, who will speak on their research in the Everglades and with swamp ecologies as a way of knowing.

Weeklong Intensive and Symposium will take place August 22–26, 2023. On Friday, Aug 25th, there will be a Field Trip led by Christy Gast and Camila Marambio.
