If you were there that day - you're probably in this film!

Five/Thirty: An Urban Conflux was surprise event celebrating the Anchorage centennial. A one day gathering on May 30th, 2015 (that's the "Five/Thirty" part) to discover Urban Anchorage in unexpected ways. Events were organized to happen all over the city simultaneously as a celebration of exploring urban life. 

Each event was in reality and experiment to learn if people would change what they had planned for the day if they were interrupted by musicians and offered a chance to divert to Town Square Park where a surprise was waiting for them: an Urban Conflux. The Urban Conflux told the history of Anchorage, through original music, movement and spoken word. The project partnered with the local businesses to create mock events that could be interrupted. People Mover and had musicians on the bus system in Anchorage for the first time in it's history. The Anchorage Symphony Orchestra partnered with local musicians playing original scores. 

The film demonstrates how we used music to disrupt and connect businesses, artists, and the people of Anchorage to each other and the history of our city.
