Opening Reception: RISING Coastal Photography
February 16 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
RISING is a collaborative multimedia research project, using photography and oral history to better understand coastal communities’ beliefs and understandings regarding climate change. What changes have coastal residents witnessed due to recurring coastal hazards? How have they adapted to the changes? How have these past experiences with hazards affected their perceptions of future climate change and sea level rise?
Join us for the opening reception on Friday, Feb 16th, featuring remarks by project directors Baxter Miller and Ryan Stancil as well as snacks by Bill Smith of Crook’s Corner.
This project is made possible by a Community Collaborative Research Grant, a program of North Carolina Sea Grant in partnership with the William R. Kenan Jr. Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science at NC State University. Special thanks to our co-sponsors, the Department of American Studies, Food For All, and the Coastal Resilience Center.
