Event Details

Exploring sustainability as a thread that weaves together a community, The fabric of a Communtiy could be tied to a concrete geography or fastened to a virtual heartland of shared values. Through the exploration of visual metaphors contributed by the panelists, audience and panel alike will engage in a dialogue aiming to arrive at a new understanding of the space we share.
