Anchorage, AK - Anchorage Concert Association created the Community Artist Project to partner with local artists to create short-term projects that provide connections between communities throughout Anchorage while social events, venues, and performances remain limited due to the COVID-19 crisis.

 

One Voice, Many Stories, created by O’Hara Shipe, is a mini-rockumentary of intimate concerts and interviews with Anchorage-based musicians Photonak and The Forest That Never Sleeps. It provides a place for artists to perform their music and explore themes of mental health, creativity, inspiration, and finding community. This project highlights talented local musicians while also providing a message of hope for those who are struggling with feelings of isolation, depression, and hopelessness. Normalizing the discussion of mental health can make it easier for those who need help to talk about it, which is why Anchorage Concerts has partnered with NAMI Anchorage as well as O’Hara Shipe for this Community Artist Project during Mental Health Awareness Month.
