Hear ‘Climate Stories’ at The Collider

The Collider’s monthly movie night, featuring films related to climate and the environment, will be hosted on April 24, in partnership with the UNC Institute for the Environment and Climate Stories NC as part of the North Carolina Science Festival. The documentary, Climate Stories NC, seeks to capture the voices of North Carolinians whose lives have been affected by changes in the climate.

Climate Stories NC is a series of mini-documentaries capturing the voices of ordinary North Carolinians – farmers, hunters, beekeepers, fishermen, apple growers and others whose lives have been affected by changes in the climate. The project is funded by a grant from Z. Smith Reynolds and managed by the Institute for the Environment at UNC Chapel Hill. David Salvesen, producer and director of the Sustainable Triangle Field Site at the UNC Institute for the Environment, will screen several of the mini-documentaries and then lead a discussion on his captivating approach to storytelling.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; the program begins at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public with a suggested donation of $10 per person or $20 per family. Refreshments included, as well as a selection of Oskar Blues craft beers.

The Collider is located at 1 Haywood Street, on the top floor of the Wells Fargo building in downtown Asheville at Pritchard Park. Access to the building for evening events is through the glass door facing Patton Ave, around the corner from the ATM machine.
