Featured in this Show

  • Creative Placemaking

    La Crosse residents who want to improve neighborhoods and the economy through the arts had a chance to attend a presentation this week on the concept of “Creative Placemaking”. We talk with presenter Ann Markusen (photo left) of the University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Learn more about “creative placemaking” in this Presentation to the National Council on the Arts.

  • Advocating for the Deaf

    We talk with Dr. Jane Fernandes (photo left). The Iowa native was born deaf but learned how to speak as a child, and learned American Sign Language in her 20s. As a provost and vice chancellor at the University of North Carolina-Asheville she is an advocate for the deaf and works against white privilege. She was in La Crosse this week to talk with the UW-La Crosse community.
