THOUGHT LEADERS and STORYTELLERS reshaping how we view our communities.
#21 - The Creatively Engaging - John
John Spiak, Director/Chief Curator of Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, California is my guest for episode #21.
Join us for an inspiring conversation exploring social practice, artist residencies, community building, and innovation during a time of Covid.
" #20 - The Creatively Engaging - Beth"
A great chat with Producer / Director / Writer Beth Harrington. We talk about her recent works, "The Winding Stream – The Carters, The Cashes and The Course of Country Music", and the Grammy-nominated "Welcome to the Club – The Women of Rockabilly" plus two fantastic films that are in production.
#19 - The Creatively Engaging - David
Today's guest is David Greenberger, a New York State based artist. A prolific creative in visual art, story, spoken word, music, and performance. In today's episode we trace David's career from his early days within the Duplex Nursing home to his latest project, "Everybody's Home". A project that covered 6 months during the early part of the pandemic. David started calling friends and family, who were housebound like himself, and through those conversations created a 151 track compilation in collaboration with musician Tyson Rogers.
#18 - The Creatively Engaging - Beth - Pt 1
Welcome to my "unexpected" episode with independent filmmaker, Beth Harrington. "Unexpected" in the sense that I originally planned to interview Beth so that I could secure maybe one or two soundbites to use in my upcoming March podcast about the artist David Greenberger. That changed when I started to listen to the tape of both Beth and I. It soon became obvious that Beth's longtime friendship with David and her in progress documentary on David, "Beyond The Duplex Planet", was greater than one or two sound bites.
#17 - The Creatively Engaging - Monika & Anna
A fascinating conversation with two amazing artists, Monika Mašanauskaitė, and Anna Szałucka. Hear about their Piano Phase project that happened in the MO Museum in Lithuania, summer 2021.
"#16 - The Creatively Engaging - Terry"
Join us for a great conversation with CEO of BC Care Providers, Terry Lake.
