Timed to coincide with the Wetlands Art Tour and MC’d by John Calhoun of the Goodnight Show, Antenna::Signals Issue.005 will explore the loss of the wetlands and those things we may come to find or rediscover about community, ecology and history as we face unimaginable changes to our environment.
Featuring a musical/theatrical performance from Cry You One; a presentation from Rashida Ferdinand on Sankofa’s work to develop a new Wetlands Park, which hugs the other side of the levee from Bayou Bienvenue, aka, the Ghost Swamp; a presentation from Joseph Makkos, who will discuss his discovery of a pristine archive of Times Picayune newspapers from 1880-1930 and what they tell us about our shifting relationship to nature; a presentation from Michel Varisco on her practice; and many more!
