This event is free and will be held via Zoom. Pre-registration required.
Sitka's Fall 2020 residency program begins in October when the first of 30 invited residents from diverse practices and backgrounds will arrive. In this first Show & Tell event of the season, you will hear from writer, editor, science communicator and certified climate interpreter, Athena Copenhaver, artist and researcher Nina Elder, rap artist Phil House, author Kirstin Valdez Quade and visual artist Samantha Wall. Read more about these residents and their work below, and watch for more interactive opportunities to engage with Sitka's residents as the season continues.
Please join us for this event and help us welcome Athena, Nina, Phil Kirstin and Samantha to the Sitka Center and Cascade Head.
Register today and join us for this free, online poetry reading with spring 2018 Sitka poet in residence Allison Hutchcraft.
Hutchcraft will read from her newly finished book of poems, Swale, and shares:
"So many pivotal poems in Swale were born at Sitka; it will be a gift to celebrate the book's release with you all... Quite simply: this book would not exist without Sitka, and for that (and more) I am immensely grateful."
Hutchcraft's poems, which are rooted in ecological concerns, draw inspiration from Oregon coastal places like Crowley Creek, the Salmon River estuary and Neskowin's "Ghost Forest."
