Social Practices Art Network (SPAN) is a site/community created to be an online resource and archive for individuals, organizations, community groups and institutions that are interested in new genre arts forms and practices. As an extension of this online archive, The BRAC Listening Station/ Listening Session will allow (SPAN) to "tune" the archive into the rich cultural community/history of the Bronx by creating of a set of interviews with socially engaged Bronx artists. These Bronx "Listening Sessions" will allow a local and an extended audience to look deeply in on the history and creative happenings of the South Bronx, a neighborhood that has a deep roots and history in collective artistic practice and socially engaged artwork.
Sign up online for a Listening Session as Jules Rochielle will be present Dec 13 to Jan 1 to build a community archive with you. If you are not available during this time she will follow up with you via email, phone, skype or whatever works.
Check out our Podcast. We have produced 18 full interviews based on material from our archive. We are working to produce the additional interviews as fast as we can.
