INTERVIEWS FOR SKY OVER MILTON PROJECT

Unavailable, but perhaps returning…. 

Milton, Wisconsin is one of 5 Miltons across the United States that are a part of Sky Over Milton, a performance experiment by PearlDamour that explores “the tiny individual living under a huge, shared sky.” The duo of Katie Pearl and Lisa D’Amour—and their crew—have visited these Miltons in the past year, engaged in conversations with residents, and documented how life is lived in each city/town.

More information about the project can be found on their website: http://www.skyovermilton.com.

Right now, they’re looking for profiles of residents from each Milton. If you take a look at the website, they have some profiles up already.

I am offering anyone who wants to do an interview ONE volunteer hour for a completed interview. You can choose anyone you want to interview: a friend, a family member, business owner, or anyone else in town. I also have a list of questions, so you don’t have to worry about what to say!
