Join the MoCP on a trip to engage with the racialized geographies and contested indigenous landscapes, petroleum supply chains, finance, power and resistance in the global suburb of Aurora, Illinois.
Facilitated by exhibiting artist Rozalinda Borcilă, this trip is designed collaboratively among a working group of residents, researchers, artists and troublemakers. By engaging with different sites and knowledge systems, we will challenge conventional histories and understandings of place-making.
Activities include a walk along an Enbridge pipeline, a conversation on local efforts to resist the destruction of indigenous histories and sacred sites, an unauthorized tour of the infrastructure of world financial markers, and storytelling about local rail and migration history. We will end by sharing a meal and conversation at a community land project.
Estimated trip time is six hours, including travel time. Please meet us in Aurora (final address TBD) with your car, sun protection and a picnic lunch. We will provide water and some fruit snacks to share.
