4/8/10 Art in Storefronts Chinatown and Women Making Airwaves for Peace in Mysore, India


Luis Cancel, the director of cultural affairs at the San Francisco Arts Commission, and Abby Chen, program director at the Chinese Culture Center join us to discuss the soon-to-be-launched “Art in Storefronts” program in Chinatown. This program will bring art installations to vacant storefronts and started last year in four neighborhoods around San Francisco: Central Market, the Tenderloin, Bayview, and the Mission districts.

Also, we speak with Preeti Mangala Shekar from Apex Express about her experience and reflections on a recent community radio camp held in Mysore, India. This camp was a training forum for women in community radio in various countries in Asia-Pacific including Nepal, Sri Lanka, Fiji, India, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
