"What does water mean to you?" As climate change alters our lived experiences, consider the role of water in your life. Share your one-minute reflection on this topic at the recording booths Thursday, March 24 in the Anchorage Museum atrium from 3:30 - 6:30 p.m; and Out North Radio, 2601 Spenard Rd, from 5-8 p.m. If you can't make Thursday's events, visit Out North Radio Saturday, March 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Your contribution can take the form of story, song, poem, or just a simple spoken response. Included with museum admission.

This event, in conjunction with the artist residency of Andrea Wollensak, is open to all Alaskan voices. Wollensak has been working with Alaska collaborators over the past two years to examine issues of climate change through poetry, projection, and scientific data. In conjunction with local poets, culture bearers, scientists, and youth, Andrea is gathering reflections on experiences of the water's edge. 

The Anchorage Museum invites you to participate by contributing stories about your connections with rivers and oceans around Alaska, sounds of water, experiences of a changing climate, and poems or creative audio recordings. All contributions will be curated into a series of listening sessions to be broadcast in and around the city of Anchorage and at the Anchorage Museum during October and November 2022.

This program is part of a series supported, in part, by the Via Art Fund and in conjunction with the Water Moves Life project.
