A week of somatic-oriented practices produced by Hannah Krafcik and Emily Jones and facilitated by local and visiting artists // July 15-22, 2017 // Portland, Oregon and the Oregon Coast  

Ecological Bodies: a week of somatic inquiry happened in various locations within Portland, Oregon. Proposals were offered to build awareness of human bodies in relationship to various environments and ecologies. Artists and participants considered how interactions with and “stories of” the space and objects shaped the relationships they have with their interior. At the end of this week, several collaborating artists traveled to the Oregon Coast to conduct further research and harvest, shared through scores, photographs, writings, and other formats.
