The Alaska Design Forum is pleased to announce ReLOCATE, a special project taking place in August & September 2012.
ReLOCATE is a group of social artists from around the world working with the community of Kivalina and the ADF to initiate a new, community-led and culturally specific relocation. Using social arts methods and online media, Re-Locate is building artistic and web-based platforms that intend to make the social, political, and environmental issues related to relocation visible to global audiences and form the partnerships needed to support relocation alternatives.
ReLOCATE began on August 19 and includes the participation of four artists from the group WochenKlausur, digital media artist Sharon Daniel, Jen Marlow from Three Degrees, and four artists from California College Of The Arts.
ReLOCATE project participants will be involved with the Next North symposium at The Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center. The Next North symposium takes place on September 6-8, 2012.
