UPCOMING EVENTS

In light of the ongoing developments regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and the latest guidance provided by the CDC and the Municipality of Anchorage, we will be postponing and/or modifying upcoming gatherings to be accessible via remote engagement. We are committed to continuing to provide opportunities for community engagement and conversation, and doing so in a way that supports public health. The list below contains the most up-to-date information on our upcoming scheduled events:

TOGETHERINGS

Sun, May 17 8-9PM 
Sun, May 24 8-9PM 
Sun, May 31 8-9PM 

live on KONR-LP 106.1 outnorthradio.com

Hosted live by Alaska Humanities Forum on KONR-Out North Radio, the Togetherings are participatory conversations conceived in a series of three episodes around a central theme.  At each Togethering, two people kick-off the dialogue and then the radio audience is invited to join them by calling in  at (907) 222-1061. 

 

The theme of the second series is Future Ready, in partnership with the SEED Lab. The episodes, Creating for Tomorrow, Today is Tomorrow’s Yesterday, and Place, Space and Trace, will be live broadcast on 106.1 FM and KONR-Out North Radio.

 

The theme of the first series of Togetherings was Taboos, specifically: Rage, Death, and Shame. You can listen to the Shame episode on the Forum's Soundcloud.


If you listened to the first series in April, please complete this 2-min survey.  We'd like to hear what you think.

 

This show is sponsored in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this show do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or the Alaska Humanities Forum.

STORY CIRCLES

Tuesdays in May: Educators and Community Members
Thursdays in May: Youth

More at storyworksak.org

Story Circles are opportunities for small groups of people to gather together to listen and share thoughts and stories related to a common theme. No preparation is necessary and each participant has the option to share or simply listen to others. Story Circles aren’t about performing. Rather, the purpose is to listen and connect.

In partnership with Story Works Alaska, the Forum is hosting a series of story circles for educators and community members and also a series for youth.

More details can be found at storyworksak.org.
