Robin is an artist whose work focuses on the intersection between drawing, photography and sculpture. She is on the art studio faculty at UC Davis, where she teaches sculpture and drawing, as well as special topics courses, including one on Public Art.
Andrew is a poet who facilitates community generated poems — he helped construct one at the I-A conference. He also teaches humanities at a Waldorf high school in Sacramento. He and Robin met when one of Robin’s kids took one of Andrew’s classes. And, the two have since collaborated on visual art and poetry projects.

Robin and Andrew discuss challenges to developing one’s consciousness in academia, finding spaces for creative practice and the importance of “finding your people."
