A Studio in the Woods and Louisiana’s Plaquemines Parish Government will bring internationally recognized artist, biologist and educator Brandon Ballengée for a community-based residency with at risk Plaquemines Parish coastal communities. Through participatory art and science, Searching for Ghosts of the Gulf will explore missing Gulf of Mexico species with youth, fisherman, and community members that are themselves endangered. Together we will build resilience for ‘at risk’ coastal populations using citizen driven art/ science research while taking collaborative actions towards a collective future survival.
