For humans to survive, ecological artist Jackie Brookner says it is not enough to change the ways we fuel, feed, entertain and shelter ourselves. Something much more basic has to happen. We need to mainstream a different understanding of who we are, as individuals and as a species. She calls this â€œthe being of human,â€ and says it is about the â€œverbingâ€ of our existence.
Within this context, Brookner introduces TheÂ Fargo Project, the recipient of a prestigious â€œOur Townâ€ grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The Fargo Project is transforming a functioning 18-acre storm water detention basin into a prairie commons, through a community driven process that fosters collective creative agency.
