Announcing Megalops Participants (Part 1)
Somewhere on the banks of the Mississippi, between Minneapolis and St. Paul, a motley crew of artists, scientists and storytellers converge.
They include The Como Avenue Jug Band, Dan Dressler, Pete Driessen, Jan Estep, Katie Hargrave, Peter L. Johnson, Kalen Rainbow Keir, Landland, Christy Newell & Robert Bauer, Pat Nunnally, Ilana Percher, Wang Ping, Bonnie J. Ploger, Prairie Fire Lady Choir, Kate Saturday & Erik Ostrom, David Wiggins, Sarah Wolbert, and Brad Zellar. More will be joining them.
As the sun begins to set, a fire is made and stories are swapped. A question emerges:
When were you last on The River? Not just on it, but in it. Deep inside its waters, its histories and its futures...
They talk late into the night and by morning, they have a plan. They'll trade their little white Megalops for something bigger. They'll need a vessel that fits at least 100 at a time because they're planning to put people back on the river, in it.
