Stay Salty: Lakefacing Stories is more than a podcast, it’s part of a community-wide movement to deepen our collective relationship with Great Salt Lake and with each other as we advocate for a deeper water level. Join us at upcoming events that aim to identify to heal, restore, and avert the crisis at Great Salt Lake.

Stay Salty: Lakefacing Stories Exhibit

Salt Lake City Public Library
April 13-June 1

In this multimedia exhibit, we will showcase lakefacing stories through photos, audio clips and text from people we interviewed for the Stay Salty podcast. The exhibit will invite people to move slowly through the space as people listen to our neighbors’ voices, appreciate photos from the imperiled inland sea and read stories that answer our core questions about our future in the Great Salt Lake Basin: Why stay? How to stay? And who gets to stay (or leave)?

Staying with Great Salt Lake: Community Conversation

Salt Lake City Public Library, Meeting Room B
Thursday, March 23, 6:30-9:00 pm 

If the Great Salt Lake dries up, will you stay? Will you leave? Join us for a community conversation as we explore why stay, who gets to stay (or leave), and how we stay if the lake dries up. Local facilitators and storytellers Katherine Quaid and Ashley Finley will guide participants in an exploration of these questions at a personal and collective level. You will walk away with a greater understanding of your relationship with Great Salt Lake and the current crisis, as well as new ways to think about solutions to the crisis and disproportionate impacts.

The first 30 minutes of the event will be for seeing, reading and hearing the stories in the What It Means to Stay: Lakefacing Stories exhibit, which is up at the SLC Main Library until June 1. If you've already visited the exhibit, just show up no later than 7:00 pm, when the facilitated conversation will begin. 


Storytelling Workshop 

Location and time TBD. Stay tuned! 

If you live in the Great Salt Lake Basin, chances are you have a Great Salt Lake story worth sharing — even if you don’t know it yet. With the help of skilled facilitators and storytellers, we’ll help you tap into your connections to this place. We’ll explore our project’s guiding questions: Why stay? How to stay? And who gets to stay (or leave)? And we’ll talk through storytelling tips and tricks so if you want to share your story with a wider audience, whether through a creative outlet or advocacy space, you’ll feel confident doing so. Overall, we’ll create a non-judgemental, welcoming space to explore our relationships, care and future with Great Salt Lake.
