Nizhónígo Yííkado - We Walk in Beauty is a collaboration of Native American, American, and artists, performers, scientists, painters, sculptors, and researchers working in Belgium.The project considers our place on Earth in the context of the circular interconnectedness (of humans and non-humans). Photography, sensorial walking tracks, poetry, and talking events give an account of the plenitude of ways in which people engage with their environment in the present and the past, opening doors towards possible futures.
Between November 18 and December 17, 2022 a series of events and public moments in multiple locations in Brussels, Ghent, and Antwerp will take place in the framework of the project. FOLLOW the EXPO on facebook Nizhónígo Yííkado - We Walk in Beauty
