Join Dr. Christine Ballengee Morris, professor in arts administration, education and policy development and director of American Indian Studies for The Ohio State University for a free, open to the public virtual lecture, Wednesday, March 17 at 5 p.m.
Several thousand years ago, building earthworks was a central feature of the public architecture of many Indigenous cultures in the world. Gaining community support, building economic development strategies that included the arts and American Indian tribes, and consideration of Earthworks as World Heritage sites are topics explored in this presentation.
