This weeks episode is the beginning of a two week series covering the Media in the Community panel talk that took place on April 20th at the Cunneen Hacket Theatre in Poughkeepsie, NY. The event brought together artists, academics, writers and educators for what is hoped to be the first of a series of community conversations about the role art and media play in the Hudson Valley, and how we can foster new possibilities for thinking about these endeavors.
Three of the speakers from last week, Karen Michel, Edward Summers and Leonard Nevarez, specifically addressed the ways in which culture plays an important role in creating identity and being a stimulator in the development of our local communities. These conversations serve as a focal point for our conversation tonight with Christopher and Matthew chiming in.
Grab a drink, Sit back and Enjoy!!!!!
