Artist’s Choice: Hope Ginsburg – Part 1: LAND DIVE
Session I: 1-2:15 pm
Session II: 2:30-3:45 pm
Become a certified Land Diver during part one of Hope Ginsburg’s Artist’s Choice event Land Dive Team: Environment RVA at the ICA. Each session is open to 10 participants who, following a dive brief, will develop new awareness of Richmond’s environment by practicing attention to the breath, the body, and the site. Part two is an evening convening of environmental justice organizations that provides the opportunity to explore further Involvement.
These dives will take place entirely on land! You will not get the least bit wet. Land Divers receive guided meditation instruction, an introduction to scuba gear, and undertake two group meditations while breathing from a diving cylinder through a scuba regulator. Following the Environment RVA training dives, participants receive a certification card in the mail, joining a growing Land Dive Team of approximately 135 members, certified over twelve dives, taking place internationally since 2014.
