About the speaker
Shanai Matteson is an artist, writer, mother and cultural organizer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Shanai is one of the founders and collaborative directors of Water Bar & Public Studio, an artist-led public benefit corporation that serves water to build relationships and transform culture.
She creates public art, media projects, stories and social spaces to build and transform relationships. Through slow and emergent arts activism, Shanai strives to change the conditions in which we create and collaborate, shifting narratives and culture, and the systems they shape. In her work as a visual artist and writer, she documents the people and experiences that move her, creating stories and artwork that honors the complex and reciprocal nature of identity, experience, place and memory.

Northstar Kombucha is the elegant fusion of food science and design—our expertise and passion. With meticulous attention to detail, we blend our tart kombucha tea with fragrant herbs and sweet fruit juices to achieve a perfect balance of flavors in every bottle. We carefully brew and nurture each small batch of our kombucha tea using 100% organic ingredients to create an effervescent probiotic drink that is also low in sugar. Bottled in amber glass to help protect the probiotics, Northstar Kombucha is designed to look as great as it tastes. – Dan and Christina Fischer
