Wow! What a conversation. Thanks to the community for joining together on Dec. 9 to screen and discuss Tribal Justice with reporter Anne Hillman of our Solutions Desk.

How can short-form storytelling help propel a community conversation about a war that still divides us as a nation? What are the challenges in documenting history as we live it? The creators of Alaska Public Media’s Vietnam Echoes series discussed how they mixed present-day interviews with archival footage to tell Alaskans’ stories of the Vietnam War during a special One Course Discourse at the Bear Tooth Theatrepub on Dec. 1.
This event was presented in partnership with the 2017 Anchorage International Film Festival.
Thank you to all who joined us for a fascinating and engaging community conversation with inmates, staff, and the public about preparing for life after prison conducted from inside Spring Creek. Led by reporter, Anne Hillman, we talked about what’s happening to prepare people for release, the prison’s role in the larger community, and how the two populations–inside and outside the wall–can connect.
The radio program from this event aired on Community in Unity.
Thank you to the 500 attendees who joined us for two free community screenings held Sept. 13 in Anchorage and Sept. 14 in Palmer. It was a remarkable experience to screen the hour-special of The Vietnam War and share in facilitated discussion with Alaska Humanities Forum.
