Building cultural understanding through storytelling
Jennifer’s focus from 2015 through 2018 has been on the power of personal stories from the global Arctic.
Her project, Meet the North, will take you beyond the news headlines to find stories of modern Arctic culture. It’s about listening to northern people and building relationships.
Wherever she goes, Jennifer asks each person she meets for a recommendation on who to meet next. One introduction at a time, she finds stories that southern audiences would never expect.
For three years, this has been a collaboration with photographer Eric Guth. Jennifer and Eric have spent many months in the field together listening, learning, and gathering stories.
