NORTH X NORTH 2020

September – November 

North x North 2020 was a multi-modal, multi-site, multi-month, multi-discipline creative festival examining liminal space — the time between the what was and the what’s next. It was an exploration of transitions through virtual events, conversations, exhibitions, workshops and public art installations in Anchorage. Offerings included films, artist perspectives, zines and podcasts offering perspectives of people and place around the themes of shelter, landscape and intersectional self.
