Sand: Arena

A project in collaboration with city of Miami Beach

What can we learn about human consumption and our effects on the planet by focusing on one simple natural resource? As the space transforms into an arena, a wide range of voices will gather to share, question and learn from each other, in the Greek tradition of dialogue and exchange.
