A conversation about how we value art,how it is funded, who gets funding and why it matters

WAYO 104.3's Up Close and Cultural host Rachel DeGuzman had a conversation with Janice Gouldthorpe, Margot Muto, Doug Rice and Thomas Warfield about how we value arts and culture, how it is funded, who gets funded and why it matters. This on-going conversation was most recently inspired by a CBC.ca article entitled -Who makes up the 1%? In the arts, it's the bureaucrats, but the dialogues will not be limited to that narrow frame of exploration.

The June 14 and 28 radio conversations will encompass different voices that will bring individual perspectives and experiences to challenging discussions. All of the Up Close and Cultural guests are thought leaders in their communities and/or the field.

The conversation continues on 11 am on June 28 when DeGuzman welcomes guests Mark Allan Davis, Annette Ramos, and Nandita Shenoy.

This show was broadcast at 11 am on June 14 in the WAYO 104.3 FM studio in Rochester, New York.
