Artist-In-Residence Talk: Aurelia Wills

May 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The Glen Arbor Arts Center begins a new year of artist’s residencies. Minnesota creative writer Aurelia Wills has been selected for a 2024 residency. Wills, who is at work on a literary essay, will talk about her project during a public presentation May 16, 10 am.The presentation is free. “I would use this residency to work on a literary essay on climate despair, the seeming futility of the individual effort, and Spinoza’s concept of God as nature,” Wills said. “What if Spinoza was right? What does it mean to destroy nature? In other words, how do we live now that we know what we are doing and have done to the natural world? How do we, as a species, evolve to relate to the world in a way that is not simply extractive?”
