Deadline: April 1, 2018
Top Row (L to R): Breanna Peterson, Natasha Zahn Pristas, Deborah Bitanga
Bottom Row (L to R): Will Elliott, Natasha Zahn Pristas, Marissa Wilson
As Alaskans, we typically tell positive salmon narratives and we often neglect the matching dark sides of our stories, like the struggles for sustainability, equity, and resource management.
How have we developed our collective salmon narratives, what are these narratives obscuring, and how can we bring these shadows into the light?
The Alaska Salmon Fellows and Alaska Humanities Forum welcome artists and writers to contribute original work in response to these questions as part of Salmon Shadows, an experimental public arts and humanities project.
The project, developed by a group of the current Alaska Salmon Fellows, will select visual art and literary submissions to be part of an exhibit. Submissions will also be published in FORUM magazine, a publication of Alaska Humanities Forum produced three times each year.
More details and the submission form are available here.
