Pam Ferris-Olson ‘13

Dr. Pam Ferris-Olson ‘13 (GSLC, PhD) took what she learned as a writer/journalist and her exploration at Antioch of the stories of women and their importance in forming connections to create Women Mind the Water (WMW). WMW explores the intersection of women and water through storytelling. In 2020 Pam launched the Women Mind the Water Artivist Series, a podcast that engages artists in conversation about their work and invites them to talk about their personal connection with the ocean and how it influences their art. In addition to posting the podcast on her Women Mind the Water website, the podcast (video and audio versions are shared by the Museum on Main Street, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution and on iTunes and Spotify) WMW podcasts are globally recognized. Pam has been featured on podcasts as far away as Perth, Australia and she’s conducted interviews with artists on the Yucatan in Mexico and soon France and possibly Japan.
