Burning Ice

November 27, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

In September of 2009, documentary filmaker Peter Gilbert and more than 40 observers (Some of who being musicians Laurie Anderson, Jarvis Cocker, Robyn Hitchcock, Ryuichi Sakamoto and writer Suzan-Lori Parks) boarded an ice-breaking ship for the nine day voyage off the coast of Greenland with the artist led climate change project: Cape Farewell. It was their goal to see and experience the changes brought by climate change first hand, and to start a creative conversation about one of the most important issues facing humanity’s future.

Yukon artists Jane Isakson and Joyce Majiski will be joining us this evening to share their experience on The Arctic Circle Artist Residency.
