Free Event at the Thomas S. Perakos Arts & Community Center at the Frederick Gunn School
 
Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer (Citizen Potawatomi Nation) is visiting Washington CT! Join us for an evening structured around connecting people with a healthier relationship to Mother Earth, as well as to all of our relatives, human and non-human alike. Robin Wall Kimmerer is a mother, scientist, professor, and best-selling author of several works, including Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teaching of Plants.
 
Dr. Kimmerer will participate in a moderated question & answer session about her work, which focuses on traditional ecological knowledge and how it can be used to foster sustainability and envision a future of healing. Attendees will also be treated to a performance of The Ballad, a piece by local dance company Pilobolus, largely inspired by her work. Following this, Dr. Kimmerer will conduct a book signing.
 
Tickets are limited so pre-registration is required.
 
Have a Question for Dr. Kimmerer?
 
All questions should be submitted before October 27th to [email protected] with the subject line “Question for Robin Wall Kimmerer”. Please include your name and where you are from.

Event Parking Information

As parking will be tight on the Gunn School Campus, we have secured shuttle busses that will take attendees from the Washington Primary School Parking lot (11 School Street) to a drop-off point near the Perakos Arts and Community Center and back. Shuttle buses will run from 5:00 pm until 8:00pm. With other events going on in town that evening, we encourage attendees to carpool and plan on arriving in Washington by 5:30pm. If you require handicapped parking and have not already done so, please email [email protected]smuseum.org so that we can assist you.
