Reading by Meredith Davies Hadaway

Premier Performance – Icelandic Sea Wall
Washington College Music Professor Ken Schweitzer, together with several students in his Advanced Music Technology course, premier a musical composition wholly inspired by John Ruppert’s photograph, Icelandic Sea Wall.

Film Preview – GOODBYE ICE, GOODBYE ISLAND
Filmmaker Drew Denny will present excerpts from the documentary film – Goodbye Ice, Goodbye Island – edited especially for this program by Denny and film editor Ayelet Leibovitch. American artists Zaria Forman, Drew Denny and Lisa Lebofsky traveled to Greenland and the Maldives together to document Earth’s shifting landscape and the effects of climate change in process.  Their story invites viewers to share the urgency of the Greenlandic and Maldivian predicaments in a productive and hopeful way. The goal is to facilitate deeper understanding of these crises, helping to find meaning and optimism.
