Sacred Groves/Secret Parks: Orisha Landscapes in Brazil and West Africa

Speakers will share knowledge regarding the materiality, conservation, design, and spatial forms manifest in landscapes of orisha devotion in Brazil and Nigeria. The colloquium will chart new territory in the spatial and material studies of groves, particularly those sacred groves—known in Nigeria as shrines and in Brazil as terreiros—moving from an understanding of what we do know to what we can know. The conference is free and open to the public. RSVP here. To learn more about the speakers and schedule, visit the event page.
