Today, I’m joined by Laura Joyce Davis, the creator and host of the award-winning podcast Shelter in Place. What started as a creative outlet to cope with the stay-at-home order of March 2020 has now turned into almost 200 episodes of narrative nonfiction storytelling about reimagining life through creativity and community. Laura and her husband have since expanded into the podcast education space with the launch of Kasama Collective, an intensive podcast training program for female and non-binary audio storytellers, as well as a self-paced online course. We discuss navigating motherhood and creative ambitions, confronting the role of perfectionism in her life, and what inspires her to continue showing up authentically online. Transcription

Art Heals All Wounds: Spencer Wilkinson, Director of the Film Alice Street

Season 2, Ep. 17
Today, I’m joined by Oakland-based documentary filmmaker Spencer Wilkinson to discuss his second feature film called Alice Street. It’s one of the most moving, heartbreaking, and motivational films I saw this past year, especially as a person who has lived in the area for 30 years. The film explores the importance of getting the community's input for a piece of public art, how to create coalitions, gaining the political momentum with those coalitions, and also the heartbreak of letting go of a beautiful creation.TranscriptTopics Covered:The backstory of how Spencer came about making this filmLarge scale shifts happening in the cultural fabric of downtown Oakland that Spencer witnessed while filmingA brief history of The Oakland Hotel and Malonga Casquelourd Center for the ArtsHow the community negotiated with developers around the $20 million Community Benefit AgreementSpencer’s vision for the future of this film and his plans to nationally expand the social impact tourGuest Info:Spencer's InstagramAlice Street Film WebsiteAlice Street Film Instagramalicestreetfilm@gmail.comvideoproject.org/alice-streetPancho Pescador's InstagramDesi Mundo's InstagramCommunity Rejuvenation ProjectSpecial Offers:Check out https://newsly.me and use the promo code ARTHEALS for a free one-month premium subscription.Follow Me:My InstagramMy LinkedInMy TwitterArt Heals All Wounds WebsiteArt Heals All Wounds InstagramArt Heals All Wounds TwitterArt Heals All Wounds FacebookArt Heals All Wounds Newsletter
