September 12, 2022 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm UTC+2
Join Gil Lopez and Fluxers for a leisurely evening walk (re)discovering the hidden treasures and future histories of Area K and the UAC. Bring your personal, ecologic, industrial and other cultural knowledge and imaginations to share as we redefine our mental maps and place in time.
gil lopez was born on the Louisiana bayou to a Los Angelino chicano and a working class southern belle, gil lopez is steeped in Southern hospitality and culturally entangled through summers with his family in the barrios of LA. Formally educated in landscape architecture and philosophy, gil currently creates & recreates in Lenapehoking (so called Queens, NYC) as a community organizer, environmental educator and water protector. Through integration of topics spanning from culinary arts, gardening and fermentation to primitive skills and mysticism, and through the reciprocity between soil, plants and humans/animals, gil creates opportunities to reclaim the commons cultivating inter-species community through experiential learning, participatory activism, civic eco-ritual and the potential legacies their events have on our shared future(s).
