The Joshua Treenial 2019: Paradise :: Parallax
April 12-14, 2019

Historically a place of refuge and transformation, the desert is paradise to diverse forms of life. Over eons, the local ecology has adapted to establish a delicate balance of life and lack. Indigenous peoples, prospectors, individualists, artists and others have all made their ways here. Much has flourished in the wide expanses and endless horizons. Many dreams are born in the desert…some come to fruition. The Joshua Treenial 2019 celebrates all the differing variations of desert paradise and the multiple viewpoints that they encompass.
