“Home in the Swamp” centers on Toledo, the Great Black Swamp, and the region’s settlement history. The changing nature of the swamp means that it has no borders and cannot be grasped. As such, it is a fertile ground to explore topics of uncertainty, fear, settlement, migration, and shifting identities as we revive the swamp as a means to understand our modern experience.
Midstory is a 501(c)(3) non-profit thinkhub that progresses the narrative of the Midwest by incubating bright, diverse and interdisciplinary thinkers to exchange ideas and envision the future of our region through multimedia storytelling and solutions-oriented research since its founding in 2018.
