The Isle of Printing will lead Sewanee in a community project centered around The Communication Station - Automated Exchange Interface, an experimental process for people to share and receive objects and ideas. Participants can interact, examine and share with their community in an efficient modern manner that explores our collective ability to communicate with one another as neighbors and citizens of the world.
The event begins on Friday, Sept. 28, and everyone is welcome. From noon to 1:30 p.m., the Isle of Printing will be in McClurg Dining Hall to begin the conversation, and from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., they will join the festivities at AngelFest in downtown Sewanee.
Consider bringing a gift, an object smaller than a shoebox. Participants can bring something they associate with the community of Sewanee or an object they would like the community of Sewanee to have.
Through the shared experience of these objects, the project aims to find pathways towards positive connections and a higher level of interpersonal communication between seemingly disparate groups.
Gifts and stories will shape the exhibition “Communication Station: Automated Exchange” in the University Art Gallery, opening Oct. 25.
