Dwelling on the Border

With so much focus on immigration today, what might we learn from the efforts of many today to secure and lock down our borders? What happens in that lock down, on our physical borders or the borders of difference and identity? Who gets locked in and who is locked out? And who holds the keys? We’ll explore the dynamics of power present in any borderland and the possibilities for tapping into that power creatively as we live with and through change.
