“What I really want is for people to think for themselves, feel for themselves, ask the earth where they live ‘What must we do?’ and to act on the answers that emerge.” — Derrick Jensen

Columbus Day Weekend 2007, Charlottesville, VA
As todays political climate within the United States continues to foster a lack of willing examination into the continual degradation of environmental and human affairs, we may look to Columbus Day as a medium by which to examine our collective historical and cultural lineage, its consequences and contemporary condition.
The Living Education Center for Ecology and The Arts and The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative are teaming up to create a weekend of thought provoking dialogue and events. This Columbus Day weekend, prominent writers, artists, and activists Ward Churchill, Natsu Saito, Derrick Jensen, and Dana Lyons will engage in three days of public events exploring the Columbus legacy: its origins, implications, and impact upon contemporary American culture.
