The Confluence Area

August 28th, 2019

Sarah Lewison presents her work in the confluence area where the Mississippi, Missouri and Illinois River converge.


It is not only bodies of water but also narratives that converge in the Confluence Area. These narratives are at times complementary and at other times exclusive. Sarah Lewison’s research and activism aims at connecting the stories and experiences along the Mississippi River and to reshape narratives to allow for uncertainty. Her presentation addresses the mapping of narratives, the building of community seed libraries, the practice of de-individualized prepping and the fate of fish.
