Be one of 24 inquirers to consider the dimensions of STATION, the “placeness” of contemporary life and work. Spend a week in June making the island of Vinalhaven a hub of diverse creative networks and a junction for productive thinking and making.

What are the “stations” of our work, interactions, and play? When our networks are not only local but also regional, global, and frequently virtual, where is activity situated? Do we yearn for both fixity of place and transitory freedom? What are the tensions, if any, between these extremes? The more that mobility is privileged, does place matter less? How might stations—their locations, design, histories, and potential—benefit and/or hamper relationships and professional practices?
