Monica Patterson featured in Encuentro 2014 coverage

Concordia News asked Monica Patterson for her take on the Hemispheric Institute’s Encuentro, taking place at Concordia June 21-28.

“Every two years, the Hemispheric Institute hosts an Encuentro — part academic conference, part performance festival—in a different site in the Americas. Fostering experimentation, dialogue, and collaboration, each Encuentro brings together between 500 and 700 scholars, artists, activists and students to take part in a week-long program of keynote lectures, work groups, teach-ins, performances, installations, roundtable and long table discussions, urban interventions, visual arts exhibits, and hands-on performance workshops.” – the Hemispheric Institute

This year, Monica will be convening a session at CEREV entitled “Collaboration – Exhibition – Research.” Click through for more information.
