Listening for the Future of Appalachia

Musician and A Blade of Grass Fellow Brian Harnetty has created Forest Listening Rooms, bringing together Appalachian Ohioans across the political spectrum to critically listen to the sounds of their literal “common ground,” the Wayne National Forest. By creating intentional space for participants to engage in meditative practice and share stories of their relationship to the forest, the project builds community in resistance to the environmental extraction that has historically harmed the region.
