Opening Thursday, October 11th, from 5:30PM - 8PM
We’re teaming up with the Experimental Station, The Fest, curated by Third Coast International Audio Festival, and the Smart Museum of Art to bring contemporary local artist Norman Long, to the Public Newsroom.
Long, born and raised Chicago’s South Side, will create a captivating experience that ties sound and place. We’ll be kicking off the evening early at 5:30pm with a soundwalk around Woodlawn. Long’s walks develop over time as well as space and engage audiences by reorienting their sense of site through active listening. Following the walk, Long will lead a discussion about his work and their connections to living in a neighborhood, as well as how the walks tie in with journalistic practices.
This week’s Public Newsroom is part of The Fest, curated by Third Coast. The Fest is a two-week lineup of events across Chicago that push the boundaries of live audio storytelling, curated by Third Coast. Check all of the shows in our 2018 lineup at www.thefestchicago.org. The evening’s workshop was also developed for Experimental Station’s program series, Environmental Concerns, and in connection with the Smart Museum’s exhibition The Time is Now!
This event is part of City Bureau’s #PublicNewsroom programming, a series of free, weekly workshops and discussions aimed at building trust between journalists and the communities they serve while shaping a more inclusive newsroom.
