EK On The Go – Episode #7
Discovering and Creating Places that Matter for Our Emotions
In our last episode, we traveled with architect Bradley Khouri and learned how mixed-use development is reshaping our neighborhoods. In this episode, we focus on what may be getting lost in this process of change. Today, our guide is Susan Robb, a Seattle-based interdisciplinary artist and thought leader. Susan will show us how we can transform contemporary concerns such as climate crisis, social isolation, high-speed daily living into opportunities to re-envision and re-connect. Susan wrote the Seattle Artist In Residence Master Plan and is currently engaged by the City of Tacoma on a downtown place-making project. Susan’s on-going investigation of people and our emotional connection to place encompasses media such as sculpture, photography, video, performance, interventions, and socially-engaged work. Join us on an artistic adventure and learn how and why places matter to our emotional well-being.
