In today's new episode, Immersive Storytelling and Co-creation with Formerly Incarcerated Fathers
In an early podcast episode we struggled with a question of whether artists can make a social impact with their work, or whether their practices serves primarily in a role as a poetic or powerful symbolic action. More bluntly, can artists working with contemporary technology dismantle tools of oppression and injustice?
A Father's Lullaby is the name of an expansive ongoing research and storytelling project established by the new media artist Rashin Fahandej. Working with the formerly incarcerated, as well as her undergraduate students, the project highlights the role of fathers in raising children, and creates a space for paradigm shifting and social equity through a process of community co-creation.
This season we’ve partnered with the New Media Caucus, an international non-profit formed to promote the development and understanding of new media art. We’re interviewing five new media artists working today, both individually and at a live in-person event we held in February for New Rules: Conversations with New Media Artists.
New episodes every Thursday this season!
