PowerPoint: Where's the Power, What's the Point?

@ VOL 10 ON NOV 13, 2018

As a PowerPoint Cynic and Director of Planning and Development, Anne Fadullon presents a PowerPoint about the agency she leads, the great work she and her team do, and who knows what else!

@ VOL 10 ON NOV 13, 2018

Listen as Justin Kozak explains how technological advancement, population growth, and climate change ensure that repeat successes will rarely follow the same formula.

There Goes the Neighborhood

@ VOL 10 ON NOV 13, 2018

To some, the movie Friday (1995) was a stoner comedy about two buddies struggling to come up with $200 they needed to pay a drug dealer by 10:00 p.m., on a Friday. But, to Eric Dexter, it was more than that. It was really about how the 'characters' in the neighborhood *were* the neighborhood.

Moving Traditions Forward

@ VOL 10 ON NOV 13, 2018

In Southern Louisiana, we live at a very unique intersection between environment and culture where one is dependent on the other. Our environmental heritage comes with the responsibility of ensuring that generations to come will be able to enjoy what this land and water have given to us for decades. Join Jonathan Foret in learning how we begin the conversation of moving our traditions forward in a time of environmental uncertainty.
