Art Talk Bus Stop with Roots and Beats Project

Art Talk Bus Stop is a serial 30-minute podcast produced by a group of students and educators based out of Reynolds High School in Troutdale, OR. Each month we interview with an artist, curator, musician, maker, or creative worker about their job. Students learn to research and ask interesting questions, how to run the tech, produce and edit the show, and promote new episodes. They do most of the interviewing themselves with mentorship and guidance from their teacher and me. Visit the SoundCloud page for full episodes

Our guests for this episode were Rio Collier and Christian Osorio, who together founded Roots and Beats Project. Roots and Beats Project fosters positive youth development through media arts education and cultural engagement. Our curriculum merges tradition and technology to weave culturally-rooted digital storytelling focusing on immigrant, refugee and ethnic diaspora experience. We work in partnership with local nonprofits and schools to provide music and multimedia workshops at no cost to underserved youth ages 12-21 years old.
