Changing the Course of a River (episode 3)

September 20, 2022

The history of water in our region, as seen through the lens of creativity and innovation. 

------------------

This is the third episode of "Where Water Flows Uphill", a special series that is asking, In the coming flood of change, who do we want to be? 

Produced by Weld Found, we follow Wes Bruce as he is creating a large-scale, interactive art installation at the LINC (Library and Innovation Center in downtown Greeley, CO). His work in the heart of the LINC is inspired by the 100 acres around the Poudre River called Signature Bluffs.

Special thanks to the High Plains Library District and NOCO Optimist for extra help with production.

Returning Home (Live from Do Tell)

Returning Home (Live from Do Tell)

August 17, 2022

Weld Found returns with a new series, “Where Water Flows Uphill”! Look for new episodes in the following weeks (made possible by the Weld Community Foundation weldcommunityfoundation.org)

In today’s show, host of Weld Found, Tim Coons, shares a personal story of belonging. When Tim took a job down in Denver in 2011, he didn’t realize that the physical distance he traversed while commuting would start to create emotional and relational distance between himself and his community here in Weld County. His story is about bridging that gap and rediscovering belonging in a new role closer to home.

 

Special Thanks to Greeley Creative District and Andy Nagel (audio engineer for Do Tell)

Head’s Up: there is some blue comedy in this Blue Christmas episode of Weld Found.

The Longest Night

We’re addressing mental health and suicide prevention for the show today.  We head into the office of Dr. Rich Mahogany (ManTherapy.org) who approaches mental health with grit and humor. We’ll also talk with North Range Behavioral Health’s Suicide Education and Support Services (SESS) program about how we can help prevent suicide through an innovative suicide prevention program called QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer). We’ll then wrap the episode up with a breathing-exercise about hope.
