This panel discussion hosted by our programme partner the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, Center for Culture, History, and Environment, and Division of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin- Madison, will bring together perspectives from the arts, humanities, and science to consider ice both as an object and as a metaphor for our planet’s uncertain and fragile future.

Carrie Hanson, choreographer, director, and performer. Founding Artistic Director, The Seldoms; UW-Madison Interdisciplinary Artist-in-Residence (Fall 2019)

Stephen Hilyard, artist and Professor of Digital Arts, Dept of Art, UW-Madison
