In August 2018 I was invited to give a lecture - workshop at the Perennial Institute. Lecture-workshop concentrated on flower symbolism, Floriography and the history of flowers in XXI century. Topics that were derived my research for the Hortus project.

I was also commissioned for a photo documentation of the week-long program.  The Perennial Institute is an experimental educational organization created to explore creativity through the lens of plants. They are especially interested in how creative thinkers can deepen connections with this important resource to expand their practice. The Perennial Institute was co-founded by Jai McKenzie and Julka Almquist.
