Seattle-based photographer Chris Jordan explores the intersection of humanity, consumerism, and the environment in his powerful documentation of Midway Island. Located far in the Pacific Ocean, this small chain of islands is home to “thousands of albatrosses” who have suffered from plastic trash floating in the water. He’ll share stories, photos, and film from Midway, exploring the devastating effects of pollution and what can be done to save our water-dwelling neighbors. Jordan presents this free lecture as part of Chief Sealth International High School’s 4th Annual World Water Week, a student-led local ideas festival. World Water Week engages the students and staff of Chief Sealth International High School and the community at large, by learning about and taking action on water-related issues. The talk is preceded by a 6 p.m. resource fair, featuring several community organizations, refreshments, and jazz.
Presented by: Chief Sealth International High School in partnership with Town Hall.
Tickets: This event is free and open to the public.
