Last September Craftswoman House organized an exploratory trip to the ruins of Llano del Rio in preparation for a project with Hinterculture to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the colony. Now, we are excited to announce details about Squaring the Circle, the centennial event scheduled for May 3, 2014. The event will feature over thirty participants who work as historians, visual artists, filmmakers, writers, choreographers, dancers, musicians, activists, and interdisciplinary practitioners.
We face distinct challenges working in a remote desert environment and have launched a campaign to raise funds to cover costs associated with the production and documentation of the event. To learn more about the project and view our video, check out our Squaring the Circle page here.
Please become a shareholder in the Squaring the Circle community. Choose your level of support and help us build a new collective vision of Llano del Rio!
