This exhibition documents environmental and social changes caused by gold extraction. The artists aim to contribute to our understanding of the natural and social world and of struggles for environmental and social justice. They work in collaboration with communities and with the Catholic Diocese of Quibdó, Colombia.  The Community of St. Joseph is a sponsor of this project.
