Ildi Carlisle-Cummins: Docks to Delta: Listening to the Landscape along the Capitol Corridor
ALL ABOARD! Join a conversation about our agricultural past-- and a just, sustainable farming future! The Docks to Delta project is part live storytelling event and part podcast series that reveals the agricultural history evoked by a landscape travelled by thousands of commuters every day—the one seen through the windows of the Capitol Corridor Amtrak train that runs from Oakland to Sacramento. Docks to Delta will amplify the voices of people who lived through and participated in key moments in California agriculture, highlighting stories that push listeners’ thinking beyond the usual historical narratives and policy debates.
Docks to Delta guests on the Capitol Corridor train for the launch event (happening on September 26, 2015) will hear stories in a lively, thought-provoking, two-hour program on the way to Sacramento and will have the opportunity to talk to one another and the storytellers (over food, of course!) on the return trip to Oakland. After the event, all Docks to Delta stories will be made available as podcasts that can be accessed via smart phone app or computer by anyone riding the Capitol Corridor or by members of the general public, at any time.
