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 had a wonderful time travelling through Ketchikan, Juneau, Gustavus, and Sitka last month as part of the 2017 Tidelines Journey featuring artists Nina Elder, Billy Joe Miller, Jimmy Riordan, and Wendy Given.
