‘Rising’ Exhibition Opening
February 16, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 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 and sea level rise?
This event is hosted by The Center for the Study of the American South at UNC-Chapel Hill. The opening reception will feature 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. The Coastal Resilience Center is co-sponsoring the event, alongside Food For All and the Department of American Studies.
