Bring Ghost Net Landscape to your community starting in 2021!

Emily Miller collecting fishing gear and ghost net

I'm currently seeking partnerships to travel the project to new locations around the world. I'm excited to work with venues, funders, and local cultural and industry groups to connect and learn from new communities! Contact me to learn more about hosting a Ghost Net Landscape exhibit in your community.

What to expect:

Ghost Net Landscape is centered on positive transformation and creative freedom, sparked by abundance and play. Project leader Emily Miller serves as the Ghost Net Landscape artist-in-residence. Emily is present in the exhibit daily, making baskets on her sewing machine and inviting visitors to explore what they can create with this colorful, textural abundance of material. In 2019, Ghost Net Landscape included 3 beach cleanup crews, 3 commercial fisheries, 4,000 pounds of reclaimed fishing gear, and 300+ artistic collaborators!

Exhibit Needs

  • Daily artist-in-residence

Help produce Sea Stories season 2!

We are ready to produce Sea Stories season 2! Season 1 included 8 professionally produced, community-submitted puppet stories, originally broadcast in public window space and now available online. The videos are designed for accessible physical and digital display, with subtitle and closed-caption options in multiple languages.

We have 14 unreleased puppet stories ready for production. Season 2 will include 5-8 stories selected from this group. Contact me to learn more about bringing these stories to life!
