SHAKTOOLIK SOUNDWALK

INFO
Wednesday, October 5 2016
4:00PM
 
 

Shaktoolik is a small village on Alaska’s Norton Sound. Without sea ice to protect it from fierce storms, this community of 260 people faces coastal erosion and flooding. It’s one of the five most endangered communities in Alaska… a strong storm could put it several feet under water. 

But what’s it like to live there?

On Wednesday, October 5th, we’ll be offering guided audio tours that will transport you to Shaktoolik—you’ll be able to walk through the village, go into homes, meet people, and understand what life is like on the edge of change. 

Tours will leave from SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress St, at 4:30pm, 5:00pm and 5:30pm, and will take approximately 30 minutes. 

Presented with the Alaska Arctic Council and Maine Arctic Council host committees.

Reflecting on the past 15+ months of pandemic, SPACE wants to highlight the amazing recipients of our 2020 Maine Visual Artist Emergency Relief Grants and Maine Musician Relief Grants. Explore these lists to learn more about the wellspring of artists and creative thought leaders in our state.
