Over the summer I had a the pleasure of reporting for the team at one of my favorite shows Baltimore: The Rise of Charm City for a series they’re producing for the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation as part of their initiative on digital access and equity. I covered the opening of the Wash and Learn program – a collaboration with many partners, namely Libraries without Borders and city laundromats. The project is a brilliant idea, it brings internet access and employment training through library resource stations into laundromats in the heart of communities with the least access to such resources. An article shown here with more information on the program and event. https://technical.ly/baltimore/2019/06/11/wash-learn-initiative-digital-access-at-baltimore-laundromats-libraries-without-borders/ https://www.rwdfoundation.org/news/2017/10/19/the-digital-access-and-equity-report-in-baltimore-city-2017
Former teacher from New School days Gabrielle Bendiner-Viani is launching her book (including work from our class’s exhibition on SPURA on main site from 2009). Join and celebrate with her 2/14 at the New School for her exciting project’s publication. I won’t be there as I will be in a radio story-telling training in Maine, but hope to join in future events (https://www.contestedcitybook.com/events). Hope you can make it to check out this exciting book!
In a recent recording for NPR’s Morning Edition with State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby I was fortunate enough to meet Mosby in her office and record her stance on recent events in her office in conversation with host LuLu Garcia-Navarro. January 2019
