Listening To Our Environment
Join us for an immersive experience in sound at Abrams Planetarium! In this listening and writing workshop we'll shut off the noise of an artificial world and let our minds wander. Resting in the sounds of falling rain, the songs of birds and the rustle of leaves we'll observe the power of the landscape to express itself. Through guided writing exercises we'll tap into a refreshed sense of intuition and contribute our own voice to life's unfolding story. This event addresses themes in our current video program, "When the Land Speaks." Our guest speaker is Stuart Gage, director of the remote environmental assessment laboratory. Writing workshop leaders are Masaki Takahashi and Grace Carras, founders of The Poetry Room in Lansing. Be sure to come back to Abrams Planetarium on Dec. 6 for "Signs of Life," the unique, open-mic follow-up to this experimental workshop. more information...
