Sustainability Week: cultural sustainability

©Adam Swanson

"My time on the RV Falkor has been unbelievable so far. Amazing people, inspiring science, and breathtaking ocean as far as the eye can see. I am set up with a painting space in the wet-lab, surrounded by scientists, ocean mud, chemicals, and a wide array of colorful test tubes and equipment. It is an active place and the perfect space for creating direct paintings about this important ocean research. I have two paintings in the works right now and look forward to getting into many more during my time aboard! " ~ Adam Swanson

What better way to kick off Sustainability Week on Northland Morning than to talk about cultural sustainability?  After all, the arts are, in a very real sense, what sustains folks through hard times and creating a culture that supports art and artists is a valuable undertaking,

Adam Swanson will be live from the R/V Falkor Wednesday at 6:30 at Duluth Pottery. More information on the event is here

And Adam shares this link for folks who want to learn more about the work the Falkor is doing:

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
