Gulf Future Coalition says
Join us for a walk-through of How to Build a Forest followed by an arts-integrated salon that will mix together visual art and story sharing to process, reflect and vision around how we make our home here in the Gulf South.

Co-facilitated by Nick Slie from Mondo Bizarro and Jayeesha Dutta from Mind Power Collective.

Salon will be immediately followed by How To Build A Forest's opening reception or an experiential eco-walk with Nick.

Beginning in an empty space, visual artist Shawn Hall and theater/performance artists Katie Pearl and Lisa D’Amour—along with a four-person crew—work meticulously to construct, dismantle, and remove an elaborately fabricated forest. Inspired by 100 trees lost at a Louisiana family home following Hurricane Katrina, How to Build a Forest is also strongly informed by the ecological consequences of the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
