Downtown Voices: Episode 3 — Arts & Diversity

Baltimore City arts districtsMay 18, 2016 – Segment 1

A recent project at UMBC has been collecting stories of Baltimore communities as they change and grow. The idea is to meet people where they are and listen to their stories. It’s called Baltimore Traces: Communities in Transition and it’s made possible by a Hrabowski Innovation Fund grant. This semester’s radio series is called DOWNTOWN VOICES. Students talk to city folks about their thought on the past, present, and future of Baltimore.

Today, “Arts & Diversity” — a look at one of the city’s “Arts Districts,” and the divisions in race and class among the Artists who work there. Narrated by Christina Kwagen and Ilesh Patel of UMBC’s Baltimore Traces.
