Frontier of Change: As Heard on the Radio

Jun 2, 2016

  Frontier of Change is a project from KNBA that will bring the voices and stories of Alaska's changing climate to the streets and airwaves of Anchorage.

Climate change is affecting Alaska more than other parts of the country – temperatures here are rising twice as fast. And the effects are serious: the coastline is eroding, permafrost is melting, and traditional animal migration patterns are changing. 

Frontier of Change gathers stories from people whose lives and livelihoods are being profoundly affected by climate change.  These stories will be made into radio broadcasts, and into special audio tours, or "soundwalks" that will guide listeners through the streets and paths of Anchorage.

Art of an avant-garde Arctic in downtown Anchorage

By Zachariah Hughes, Alaska Public Media

When people imagine Alaska’s Arctic, experimental art isn’t typically first thing that comes to mind.

But a new exhibit at the Anchorage Museum is getting visitors, urbanites, and art-lovers to connect to the Arctic in different ways.  And the works expand well beyond the gallery walls.
