Mug Up: The Language of Work
April 1 - October 8, 2022
The Mug Up: The Language of Work exhibition shares the oft-forgotten stories of the multitudes who canned salmon and created ethnically diverse, economically vital, canning culture in Alaska. The exhibition is curated by Katie Ringsmuth and organized by the Alaska State Museum in partnership with NN Cannery History Project.

Teen Film Workshop with See Stories
Rising 7-12th graders are invited to create their own original mini-documentaries inspired by Mug Up: The Language of Work, instructed by Marie Acemah of See Stories. Pick a cannery/fishing story you want to share, and learn how to make it into a ~3 minute movie, interviewing community members, family, friends, and collecting footage to illustrate the topic. The student films will be screened in a free event at the APK Lecture Hall on June First Friday. Sign up by May 20 to participate in this workshop.
This program is partially funded by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau through sales tax revenues and is sponsored by the Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum.
