KPC Showcase screening documentary: “We Up”
Dave Atcheson, KPC’s evening coordinator, and longtime KPC Showcase coordinator, describes this film, being shown as part of the college’s celebration of Alaska Native Heritage Month, as a documentary film that traces the cultural, creative, and spiritual connections between indigenous hip-hop artists of Alaska and their peers across the circumpolar north.
According to the promotional material for the event, forty years after hip-hop culture was born in the multiethnic South Bronx neighborhood of New York City, it’s being reinterpreted in fascinating ways by indigenous artists throughout Alaska, as well as Greenland, Canada, Norway, and Finland.
After the screening of the film, Aaron Leggett, the film’s executive producer and curator of Alaska History and Culture at the Anchorage Museum, will be available to discuss the film and gather feedback.
This free event will be held at 6:30 p.m., Nov. 28, in KRC’s McLane Commons. For more information, email Atcheson at email@example.com or call 262-0346.
New exhibit in the G.L. Freeburg Gallery
This new exhibit is titled “Landfalls: Dedications to Alaskan Women Writers and Storyteller” by Alaskan artist, Katie Ione Craney. According to her artist statement, “Landfalls is a dedication for the women who have helped shape my understanding of the physical, mental, and literary landscape that is as broad as Alaska is in size. This series will continue to grow and unfold as I read and listen. I hope this work inspires you to pick up a book, read a poem, and find solace and solidarity within the words.”
Craney’s website indicates that she works primarily with found materials to explore isolation, memory, and identity in the rapidly changing northern landscape. She has vast experience and has won many awards in Alaska and throughout the country. This exhibit will be in the gallery from Nov. 8 through Dec. 14. The gallery is free and open to the public.
