Event Details

The Spirit of the Gulf Coast Exhibition is a multimedia event that explores the complexities of oil dependency and alternative energy futures through the intimate accounts of Gulf Coast residents affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The initiative began as a volunteer expedition in August where a five-person team traveled to the coast to interview local residents from communities in Grand Isle, Louisiana, Pearlington, Mississippi, and Dauphin Island, Alabama. The schedule of events is as follows:

  • Fine Art Photo Exhibit featuring the stunning photography taken on the expedition by photographer Terrell Clark
  • Documentary Short by filmmaker Nathan Black that reveals the stories, and experiences of the various coastal residents who we interviewed during the expedition.
  • “Special Guest”- A special speaker whose talk will leave you with a new perspective about what really happened during the Oil Spill
  • Social Economist Jeff Duvall- He will discuss the coastal response to the oil spill from a socio-psychological perspective
  • Nobel Prize Winner, Marilyn Brown- Dr. Marilyn Brown will discuss what public policy could do to set us on a path of sustainable energy sources
  • Call to Action- the part of the exhibit that features fellow Atlantans who are taking actions that relieve our dependency on oil
  • Panel Discussion- A Q&A giving you the chance to ask questions of any of our speakers or the Spirit team

We hope you will join us for this enlightening and inspiring event!

Spirit of the Gulf Coast

Spirit of the Gulf Coast is a volunteer project that aims to reveal the real stories behind the communities most affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

It began with a 4 day expedition to the Gulf of Mexico where our team recorded, and shared a range of perspectives on how the oil spill is affecting people’s lives in communities and towns along the coast.
