Humans & nature digital
In an era of compounding crises, the need to come together to build strong coalitions and communities asks each of us to radically reimagine what belonging—to one another and to our Earth—means. In this moment when we need connection more than ever, we invite you to pause and consider: How do we come together in a changing world? The Center’s new Questions for a Resilient Future series brings together essays and conversations curated by Editorial Fellows Kailea Loften and Kate Weiner, with artwork by Mariza Ryce Aparicio-Tovar and generous funding support from our partners at the Kalliopeia Foundation.

Making Kin—Worlds Becoming
Making Kin is an online art exhibition exploring the visual dimensions of kinship in a more-than-human world. With work from 24 artists from around the world, Making Kin is in conversation with the themes—Planet, Place, Partners, Persons, Practice—that are central to the Center for Humans and Nature’s five-volume book series, Kinship: Belonging in a World of Relations. The participating artists illuminate the deep connections between humans and nature while inviting us to consider how kinship practices and ethics can expand our sense of identity, as well as deepen our care and respect for other-than-human kin.
Making Kin is part of the Center for Humans and Nature’s Kinship Project, which includes a five-volume book series, podcast, and ongoing events.
