“Practices of Hope” showcases creative processes as ways of making change. The pieces in this issue of About Place ask: How can creative practice allow us to feel and act differently? How can we invent new collaborations and new embodiment practices for humans and other fellow creatures? What can speculative, non-realist, and hybrid forms mean for eco-arts? How can we imagine a different future with more of us in it? What hope can we afford? What hope do we need? Together, we reach for art that activates new relationships to embodiment, climate crisis, species extinction, and environmentally located social pressures.
