Residents of the Pacific Northwest are known to demonstrate a certain pride of place.
We value living amidst mountains and waterways, natural landscapes and an emerald city here and there. But we live in times when those attributes are threatened. Our very presence here is a threat.
The conservation organization Forterra is dedicated to envisioning and realizing a sustainable template for life in the Northwest. Every year now their magazine, Ampersand, puts on an event featuring local storytellers, artists and musicians. If you’re looking for meaningful, sometimes challenging reflections on what life is and can be here, Ampersand Live is the ticket.
