Atascosa Borderlands is a long-term visual storytelling project by Luke Swenson (Documentary Photographer) and Jack Dash (Naturalist and Writer). Since 2017, they have been working to better understand the Arizona-Sonora Borderlands alongside ecologists, cattle ranchers, humanitarian aid workers, migrants, hunters, ex-border patrol agents, and indigenous community members.  The project brings together hundreds of original film photographs, oral history interviews, botanical specimens, historical images, and found objects; creating a living archive dedicated to this remote 42-mile section of the US-Mexico border.

Join Luke and Jack as they tell us about the origins of their project, and their personal experiences working along the Arizona-Sonora border. Together, this collaborative duo will share photographs and stories from this biologically and culturally diverse region. Giving us insight into what there is to lose in the Arizona-Sonora Borderlands if action is not taken to heal the ecological and cultural rifts which threaten these communities and landscapes.EVENT DETAILSThursday January 18, 2024 from 6pm-8pmFREE and Open to the PublicLocated in the Garden Pavilion at Tohono ChulGuest Speakers: Jack Dash and Luke SwensonProgram Moderator: James Schaub, Director of Arts and Engagement for Tohono ChulPROGRAM SCHEDULE6:00pm Gates open6:30pm presentation by Luke and Jack begins7:15pm Audience Q & A with Luke and Jack, Moderated by James 7:45pm Event ends-THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC-
