As the environmental noise of human impact rises alongside the internal and technological noise of modern life, what is being heard? Who is being over powered? How do we remain receptive to important signals in the face of so much noise? This April, the Island Institute will work to explore these and related questions through a traveling ferry tour with a group of artists from across the country. As the tour travels through Ketchikan, Juneau, Gustavus, and Sitka, the Island Institute hopes to foster new ways of thinking about the ways that we understand place, nature, and community.
We're pleased to announce that in the course of our April stops in Ketchikan, Juneau, Gustavus, Hoonah, and Sitka, we'll be traveling with Nina Elder, Billy Joe Miller, Jimmy Riordan, Wendy Given, and one more participant yet to be announced.
