At Home in the World. An environmental and philosophical discussion led by Robert Black.

Robert believes we live in a time when humanity is, and should be, truly concerned about the future of life on our planet, Earth.  He will speak to the fact that our sense of Home, be it local or global, is shifting radically. Extinction of our animal co-inhabitants; contamination of the life-sustaining water; pollution of the air we breathe -- upsets our comfort, safety and well-being. Millions of humans are homeless and now even more are faced with the prospect of having no home, of being homeless due to environmental changes. 

Robert stated, “My talk presents a personal perspective on this timely topic, and I invite everyone to think and to feel more deeply about; what it means, to be at home on this planet.”

Robert Black is an architect, artist, teacher and professional facilitator with diverse experience in design, construction, community building, group dynamics, and creating art installations.  His life experiences include: parenting, business management, dramatic and music performance, seminars creation, architectural history research, and studies in human behavior and spiritual practices.  Robert has served on various non-profit Boards, including The Carving Studio & Sculpture Center, The Compass Music and Arts Center, The Rudolf Steiner School of Ann Arbor, The Henry Sheldon Museum, and is currently a member of The Vermont Community Foundation.

This event will be in the Sparkle Barn second floor event room, which is not handicap accessible.
