The Moving Field Guide, conceived and directed by choreographer and Dance Exchange Executive Artistic Director Cassie Meador, is an interactive experience led by Dance Exchange artists, naturalists, and regional experts in ecology.

Meador’s Moving Field Guide projects look at how the arts can offer creative tools for knowing a place, not just using a place. The project provides people across generations an opportunity to get outdoors and gain a lasting understanding of the natural world. Participants move through experiences that build upon discovery, appreciation, recognition, and stewardship of the environment.

During this immersive experience participants activate their senses and observation skills through a series of outdoor movement activities. Combining an artistic and ecological approach to learning, Moving Field Guides help participants to consider the beauty, complexity, and human impact on the environment around them.
