With the world literally at a standstill, now more than ever it’s important to check in with our friends and community. How are you coping in these unprecedented times? Need a little pick me up? A real-talk session? We got you!
Join Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi and her special guests as they talk through ups and downs of quarantine life, the little joys, the real-world observations, and the tips that keep them on track throughout it all.
Featured Guest: In this edition, Kat interviews artist and arts administrator, Marc Bamuthi Joseph. He is a 2017 TED Global Fellow, an inaugural recipient of the Guggenheim Social Practice initiative, and an honoree of the United States Artists Rockefeller Fellowship. His piece, “The Just and the Blind” investigates the crisis of over-sentencing in the prison industrial complex, and premiered at a sold out performance at Carnegie Hall in March 2019. Bamuthi is currently at work on commissions for the Perelman Center, Yale University, and the Washington National Opera as well as a new collaboration with NYC Ballet Artistic Director Wendy Whelan. Formerly the Chief of Program and Pedagogy at YBCA in San Francisco, Bamuthi currently serves as the Vice President and Artistic Director of Social Impact at The Kennedy Center.
