Common Room: The Island Tour

August 23, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The landscape of Minneapolis is home to many islands, both literal and metaphoric. On a bus tour — which will make an additional excursion onto open water — Common Room will explore some of these islands, and otherwise hear how the idea of an island is shaped by its surroundings. From the geopolitical ramifications of being an island nation to an exploration of how heat islands affect both human health and animal behavior, we’ll cross boundaries both natural and human-made on foot and by bus.
