Oil-land Trinity Retreat

On our first retreat we met with an architecture professor working to rethink building usage in "boom and bust" geographies, an oil landman who combines legal and historical research to assess mineral rights, and a solar power industry leader. Students also built collective timelines, thinking through the events/issues/technologies that have shaped our contemporary energy landscape and developed essential questions that should be asked about global energy.

Oil-land Begins

Guided by a critical pedagogy that interweaves inquiry, dialogue, action, and reflection, Borderland Collective will be collaborating with forty high school students in San Antonio, Texas on a year-long art and research project. Together, we will unpack and reflect upon historical and contemporary issues surrounding energy production, usage, and impact.
