Christy NaMee Eriksen may be best known in the Juneau arts community as an organizer of the Woosh Kinaadeiyi open mic and poetry slam. She also teaches poetry and spoken word, or performance poetry, in Juneau schools and community organizations. Eriksen identifies as a writer, multidisciplinary artist, and community activist, and recently combined these passions to produce a CD called “How to tell if a Korean Woman Loves You.” Eriksen is throwing a release party tonight, Friday, which will include live music and performance. KTOO’s Scott Burton spoke with Eriksen to learn about the motivation for her art and the project.
