About the Event

the film: This short lyrical dance-poetry piece dreams into

relationships between Great Salt Lake, birds, and humans in the

context of a collapsing ecosystem. Born out of a process of

listening to and speaking with this saline being, the piece is an

empathetic imagining of the lake's embodied experience.

where: The Cache Bar, Logan, Utah (21+). 119 South Main St.

the panel: Following the film will be a panel conversation with

local caretakers of the lake, from storytellers to policy experts to

scientists. Join us to explore the sentience of Great Salt Lake and

ways this informs approaches to the lake.

the context: Utah lawmakers are considering a bill that would

prevent Great Salt Lake from qualifying for legal personhood,

barring government entities from recognizing that nonhumans--

like the lake--have legal standing. Join UPR’s Tom Williams and

panelists for discussion on this topic.
