Adult Summer Camp w/ BIPOC Penland panel

podcast May 31, 2024

share close

After spending 8 weeks at the Penland School of Craft there was a perfect time to reflect on the experience. Your boy JBarber got together a diverse panel of Penland people to talk about it. You got students (Erika Marin and Tori Hoang), a teaching assistant (Jasmin Warnock), a CORE student (Nicholas Malik), and an instructor. Not to mention some diverse ethnic backgrounds from Latinx to Asian to Black to discuss being in art spaces like Penland and exploring your curiosity in craft. We discuss their experience in the spring concentration, how diversity effects art spaces, and what they have learned during the process. Most importantly, do we recommend Penland to other artists of color? Listen, subscribe, and share!
