Course Catalog

Conservation Issues in the Anthropocene

This immersive workshop, envisioned in collaboration with Creature Conserve and Endangered Species Coalition, will engage writers in conversation with scientists, indigenous experts, and conservation biologists to understand the history and reimagine the future of Salish Sea orcas and salmon. We will share and generate ideas concerning threats facing endangered Chinook salmon and critically endangered Southern Resident orcas, and examine possibilities for recovery. We will then collaborate across disciplines to generate work in response to these issues, with the aim of using words to make a better world. Participating writers will also be welcomed to include their work in a follow-up exhibition in fall 2020. This session includes a lunch break.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
