blr_logo_7a.jpgThe Bureau of Linguistical Reality, (a 2016 ITP Grant Partner), is excited to be doing an Artist in Residency at the Rockaway Institute for Sustainable Environment (RISE) this September 16,17,18.   We will be bringing a mobile field study office to the Rockaways, New York, a community living on the frontlines of climate change, to collaborate with Rockaway Residents to create new words to express their feelings and experiences surrounding climate issues.  We are incredibly thankful for the Whitman Institute for making this collaboration possible.

“When I walked into the Bureau of Linguistical Reality Field Study Office it hit me. . .I didn’t realize that other people are having the same feelings as I’m having around climate change. It hit me that like many things, I had viewed language as fixed. . .but the Bureau opened my eyes that everything, including our language, is not fixed. . .participating in the Bureau salon was a shift for me.”

Screen_Shot_2013_11_14_at_12.30.08_PM.pngClimate activist and Invoking the Pause Grant Partner Heidi Quante of HighWaterLine, takes the concepts from her first ITP grant project with collaborator and HighWaterLine New York artist Eve Mosher, to the next level with an ITP "Seeding Possibilities" grant. As a result, Heidi recounts the workshops she conducted in the UK:  

"Due to generous support from Invoking the Pause, I traveled to Bristol, England in the early part of 2014 to lead the first HighWaterLine | UK workshop.  In this workshop myself, Isobel Tarr (the on the ground Co-Coordinator for HighWaterLine | UK) and Alison Crowther (who has devoted over 20 years to working on climate change issues in the UK), led a 2 part workshop that brought together diverse community members in Bristol."  » Read More
