Our landscapes indicate our tomorrows.

Chatter marks are crescent-shaped gouges chipped out of bedrock by the movement of glaciers. Present since the last Ice Age, these glaciers are shrinking and disappearing as our climate warms. They mark the passage of deep time and call us to consider how our individual and collective histories urge us forward.

The Anchorage Museum's Chatter Marks project includes printed and virtual journals, essays, and a podcast dedicated to creative and critical thinking about the Circumpolar North.

Join us in exploring new modes of thinking and responding to our collective futures through a rich community of creative practitioners and change makers.
