The River Summit is an open-framework platform for exchange.
Built atop a floating barge, the River Summit will bring together artist, designers, poets, scientists, scholars,
musicians, folklorists, and many others in telling a story of the Mississippi River and its environs.
The Summit is organized to provide a discursive-platform to critically reflect and creatively engage
the many political, ecological, social, and cultural narratives that inhere within this thing
we call the Great River.
