Ants on a Log
(1) by Nicole Myles

2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Ants on a Log will record the soundtrack to their musical, Curious, Think Outside the Pipeline. The musical is about a girl named Clio and her younger sibling, Taylor (whose gender is never named), as they organize their community to fight big business oil. With strands of feminism woven throughout, the siblings research renewable energy solutions to convince the public to fight with them. Making the album will involve adapting the songs and dialogue for audio presentation, rehearsing, recording in a professional studio, mixing and mastering, packaging into an album, and adapting the discussion guide.
