Erin was working on a fishing boat in Alaska when she was reached by land: Goddard College was calling; they wanted her to set up a campus in Port Townsend and run it. Her response? “Well, you’ll have to wait until salmon season is over!”
Alumna Stacy Dawson Stearns, of Los Angeles, California, graduated from the MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts program at the Port Townsend, Washington residency site in 2012.
In this video, Stacy talks about her somatic practices in artwork and her recent award of a CHIME (Choreographers in Mentorship Exchange) Grant. For more information about Stacy's work visit her website.
And she answers: Probably not.
In 1970 alumnus Larry Yurdin (BA ’67) organized the first Alternative Media Conference at Goddard, a revolutionary event with the goal of creating media that “awakens rather than aestheticizes.” Goddard’s community radio station, WGDR, was one of the important outcomes of this ground-breaking conference. In the spirit of that original event, I warmly invite you to attend the 2013 Goddard College Alternative Media Conference on May 18.
