Diversions: Detroit-Windsor Conversations on Borders, Traffic, and Circulation

Windsor’s urban character has been closely tied to Detroit’s rise and fall. This symposium seeks to change the conversation about borders in the Windsor-Detroit region through inviting prominent artists and researchers to consider the obstacles and mobilities that have emerged in this urban locale.

This symposium is hosted by IN/TERMINUS, The Border Bookmobile, the Art Gallery of Windsor, and the Media and Urban Life Project (McGill) and takes place March 8-9, 2013. All panel discussions on Friday, March 8 are open to the public at no cost and take place at the Art Gallery of Windsor, 401 Riverside Dr. West.
