Presenters: Maurice Bisheff and Adam Wolpert

This forum will examine the idea of an ecological civilization as a transformative symbol for global culture and well being. There will be a talk and short poetry reading illuminating visions and possibilities of an “Ecological Consciousness” and its potential impact on the fabric of life on the planet. Ecological principles such as cultivating diversity, interconnectedness, harmony, and resilience will be examined. The challenges of expressing these principles will be illustrated in a dialogue with a long-time member of an intentional, sustainable community devoted to caring for people and nature in its greater environs.

Maurice Bisheff had a career in public administration and has had a long-time interest in public administration and community. Adam Wolper obtained his M.F.A. at UC San Diego and immediately following the completion of his studies, he and a group of friends started the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, where he still lives and works today. He currently serves as OAEC’s director of the arts program and teaches landscape painting.
