On Passing Time and Rising Tides: Voices of Resilience in Tidewater and Beyond
When we look at flooding from a scientific perspective, we tend to lose the real and devastating impact that increasing tidal flooding, storm surges, and sea-level rise have on people, families, and communities. Yet the voices of the affected are often not included in the conversation on resilience. This panel discussion invites you to join a conversation with some of the voices of resilience, and explore what flooding means in Tidewater Virginia through art, history, and experience. Join us for this panel discussion organized by the Barry Art Museum and Jessica Whitehead, Executive Director of Institute for Coastal Adaptation and Resilience (ICAR). Featuring Greta Pratt, ODU photography professsor and guests.
