An interdisciplinary exploration of how we know ‘place.’


With time we become familiar with a place—the geography, climate, and the people who live there. How does 'place' live in us and how can it be expressed? How do maps define place? Where is the place you call 'home?' What is the significance of our dreams—the imagined place? How long does it take for a person to become a native of a place? These are a few of the questions being addressed in this series.
Guest artists and speakers from the community and the surrounding region, UW-Stevens Point faculty, staff and students will present creative research related to place.

We invite people who live in Stevens Point, or have lived in this area, to come celebrate, listen, learn, and share their own stories, ideas and memories of this place.
