Going to Denver!

We are happy to announce that Founder and Executive Director, Lara Stein Pardo, will take up residence in Denver, Colorado in August. While there she will be a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Race and Popular Culture Lab at the University of Colorado, Boulder. She will teach courses, engage in research, and work on projects related to race and popular culture. Of the projects she will be working on, we are looking forward to the addition of Denver to the Mapping Arts Project in collaboration with local artists, organizations, and individuals.

Mapping Arts-Chicago, coming soon

New Year, New City
Introducing Mapping Arts-Chicago!

We are happy to announce there will soon be a third city in the Mapping Arts Project. Welcome, Chicago! Mapping Arts-Chicago is the work of a partnership between Blackbird and Honey Pot Performance. Honey Pot Performance's project, Juke Cry Hand Clap, looks at the histories of house music in Chicago throughout the 20th century. They've been hosting workshops, creating dance performances, and gathering information about the people, places, sounds, and movements that have been instrumental in Chicago's music scene through the "Mapping Sessions." Now, we are collaborating to bring this to the MAP!
