From The Prairies to the Pacific Rim
with Rita Wong, Emily Riddle, and Sacha Ouellet. Produced and edited by Erica H Isomura.
From the Prairies to the Pacific Rim is a poetic storytelling piece responding to climate despair. Blending soundscapes from coastal BC with eco-poetics, this work connects listeners with the spirit of language, land, water, and one other.
Listen as poets Rita Wong, Emily Riddle, Sacha Ouellet and Erica H Isomura trace ancestry, activism, and artistic endeavours in this poetic exchange, moving from amiskwaciwâskahikan in the Prairies, across the Rocky Mountains, and into the Salish Sea.
