PAFA has paused our scheduled public programming for this week. We are taking this time to listen, to reflect, and to honor Black voices in our community. We encourage our audiences to do the same.
Join illustrator Kate Samworth and journalist Lulu Miller for a conversation on their book, Why Fish Don’t Exist. They’ll discuss finding wonder in the age of the internet, finding the magical and surreal in the real, and the pursuit of creativity during a pandemic.
Kate Samworth is an artist inspired by a love of nature and adventure. She gathers ideas from around the world and has found unusual ways to travel: touring Europe with her band in the 80s, translating for a hiking guide in Brazil, and volunteering on organic farms in Spain and Turkey. She teaches annual workshops in Spain. Kate is currently working on a new series about a revolution led by bears. She is represented by Le Mieux Gallery in New Orleans, LA and exhibits in various galleries around the US.
Lulu Miller is a Peabody Award–winning science reporter who has been working in public radio for over fifteen years. She is a cofounder of NPR’s Invisibilia, a show about the invisible forces that shape human behavior. She is also a frequent contributor to Radiolab. Her writing has been published in The New Yorker, VQR, Orion, Electric Literature, Catapult, and beyond. Her favorite spot on earth is Humpback Rocks.
