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.
