Open Source RVA: Feb. 1, 2013 Podcast
On the packed Feb. 1 edition of Open Source RVA, we talk with school board members Tichi Pinkney Eppes and Shonda Harris-Muhammed, and former school board member Carol A.O. Wolf, about why Richmond Public Schools is missing in action when it comes to truancy prevention. Wolf has done much reporting on the issue at her web site, Save Our Schools.
We also speak with Spencer Turner, the executive director of the Virginia Center for Latin-American Art about the group's new Gallery Movimiento, an art bus / mobile gallery space. And we'll chat with artist Noberto Gomez Jr., whose new show is the first for the bus.
But that's not all. There's also a cool project called Stuff Redux. We talk with organizers behind this new creative reuse initiative planned by VCU's art education department in conjunction with its medical college.
