Control and Yield: Hudson Waterfront
4PM – 7PM
Basilica Hudson and Toolshed in collaboration with Hudson Valley Collaborative and the Hudson Sloop Club will host a conversation on Hudson’s waterfront and its future.
The evening will center on feedback and ideas for two waterfront projects: Hudson Valley Collaborative’s design for the expansion of the Henry Hudson Riverfront Park and accommodations for sea level rise due to climate change; and the Hudson Sloop Club’s new mobile Everett Nack Estuary Education Center (Nack Center).
- Land acknowledgement by Heather Bruegl, an independent Indigenous consultant, citizen of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin and first-line descendent of the Mohican Nation Stockbridge Munsee Band.
- Short reading by Toolshed co-founder Timothy Furstnau.
- Talk and Q&A on Indigenous concepts of land ownership led by Dr. Scott Stevens, a citizen of the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation and professor of English and Indigenous and Native American Studies at Syracuse University, who also holds positions in the Art History and Religion Departments.
- Presentations, feedback and brainstorming about the two projects on the waterfront: Hudson Valley Collaborative’s design for the expansion of the Henry Hudson Riverfront Park and accommodations for sea level rise due to climate change; and the Hudson Sloop Club’s new mobile Everett Nack Estuary Education Center (Nack Center).
- A walking tour of the waterfront park and planned programs and interventions for the site. Feedback will be encouraged and welcome during the tour.
The Hudson Valley Collaborative’s design is funded by the Hudson River Estuary Program, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, with support from the New York State Environmental Protection Fund, in cooperation with NEIWPCC.
This event is linked to a symposium at Syracuse University titled Control Yield: Living with Feral Ecologies, which occurred on March 24th and featured Anna Tsing and Wael Al-Awar.
Both events are supported by Syracuse University’s CUSE grant program, with additional funds from Toolshed.
