Confronting Violence in Baltimore: Artivism Day

March 1, 2018 – Artivism Day

Baltimore’s creative community is coming together to support CeaseFire Baltimore, which has already demonstrated its effectiveness in stopping the shootings and killings in our streets. Some of Baltimore’s best artists will celebrate the work organizations and individuals are doing to end violence in Baltimore and take the pledge to use their art to help raise awareness about violence in Baltimore. The event is called Artivism Day, and it will take place this Sunday, March 4, 5-8pm at Baltimore’s Impact Hub. We are joined in-studio by its conveners: Sheila Gaskins, founder of Artparthied, and Kenneth Morrison, Executive Director of Dew More Baltimore.

Baltimore Ceasefire: What Success Means & Where We Go From Here

August 10, 2017 – Baltimore Ceasefire

Today we launch our first podcast since our daily show closed. At the very least we will be bringing you a new podcast every week.

Baltimore Ceasefire captured the hearts and minds of our community when it launched the campaign for a weekend without killings in our neighborhoods. Last weekend was that weekend when I was unfortunately away in Memphis.  As we all know Baltimore Ceasefire went viral over the last month and no less so last weekend when dozens and dozens of groups of people craeted Ceasefire events around this City. Yes, two were murdered in a 72 hour period but a movement, a consciousness, a spirit has been born. This first podcast reflects that spirit as we talk with Erricka Bridgeford who inspired and created Baltimore Ceasefire and community theater activist and Steiner Show commentator Koli Tengella who was not part of the planning but was one of thousands to spontaneously and creatively participate respond to the call of  Baltimore Ceasefire.
