About LANDING


Presenting exhibitions, workshops, performances, lectures, and other free events for the general public, LANDING programs will focus on how we use and relate to the land that surrounds and supports us while introducing fresh perspectives and practices to art and culture in Santa Cruz. LANDING will invite, nurture, and generate collective imagining about past, present, and future land use practices, with the intention to foreground, learn from, and promote Indigenous, environmentally just, and other non-exploitive relationships with land as explored through the lens of art practice. Themes we will focus on: Fire, water, housing, food, waste, and energy.
