We are celebrating a decade of the City Creatures blog, our storytelling circle about the other-than-human wildness of urban areas! The blog began as a companion to the City Creatures book and quickly took on a life of its own, drawing contributors and readers from all over the world. For our final blog post, we invited our book contributors to share reflections about how City Creatures has impacted their work. Also featured here are two posts from the archives that offer a sense of the breadth of other-than-human encounters and experiences available right outside our doors. While City Creatures will no longer be published in blog form, all City Creatures posts are available in Stories and Ideas under the theme “Urban Nature,” and we will continue to publish pieces that focus on the urban wild!

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.
