    In the wake of the reversal of Roe v Wade, 49 years since women finally received the constitutional right to abortion, women across the country are rising up to have our voices heard. I knew this moment called for bringing back this powerful 2017 conversation with mother, filmmaker, author, and activist Paola Mendoza.   This interview occurred just over five years ago, months after the first Women's March, which Paola helped create as their Artistic Director, and days before the Day Without a Woman Strike. As this episode reaches you, women are preparing to gather in Washington D.C. again in another mass protest. Whether or not we go to a protest, I hope this conversation reinspires us to get active again, participate and lead the political charge. Because as Paola tells us “we need to remember we have the power to create the world that we want but we all have to be engaged.”    You can listen to Paola's abortion story here which she tells in a video series from The Meteor, a collective of writers, filmmakers, organizers, and artists who are committed to moving the world forward against injustice.   Just before the 2020 election, I had the honor of interviewing Paola again with the co-author Abby Sher, of her thought-provoking novel Sanctuary. You can listen to that powerful episode next here. Topics Discussed in this Episode: • The profound impact her mother had on Paola's life, and what it was like to tell her mother's courageous story as an immigrant to the U.S., in her film Entre Nos • Paola's way of connecting with her son through “Adventure Fridays” • The role of art and activism in growing compassion in other people • The importance of emphasizing both what you stand for and also what you stand against • With privilege comes responsibility, and how Paola hopes to teach her son to sacrifice his privilege to help other people • Ultimately, it's not about falling or failing, it's about how you rise up and how Paola's metaphor of “running a relay” sustains her activism • Paola's challenge to us to “participate”…to get involved in a local issue and attend a town hall meeting during the next congressional recess.   Resources Mentioned: • Entre Nos,  Paola stars in this film (which she also wrote and directed) based on her family's experiences of coming to the United States from Colombia • The Ones Who Don't Stay, Paola's novel which came from the film Entre Nos • This article where Paola talks about the Women's March being about what we are for • Ep 06: Healthy and Happy with Dr. Elisa Song where we talk about “special time” with our children • The Women's March • Unity Principles of the Women's March • A Day Without a Woman • A Quote by Audre Lorde: “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” More About Audre Lorde & Audre Lorde's Work • Indivisible, a website by former Congressional staffers who reveal best practices for making Congress listen • Focus on our Goodness: A Framework for my Activism Inspired by my Four-year Old • My recent solocast where I talk about wanting to step more into activism and why I reached out to Paola here   Full Episode Show Notes Check out the full shownotes from the original episode here: Ep 16: Rising Up with Paola Mendoza Mother's Quest is a podcast for moms who are ready to live a truly E.P.I.C. life.

    Today on the show: Galway footballers beat Armagh on penalties yesterday to advance to the All Ireland football semi-finals. Their quarter-final tie finished level at 2-21 to 3-18 after extra-time, with the Tribesmen winning the shootout 4-1. However the game was marred by a mass brawl at the end of normal time. As the players left the field, with footage appearing to show Damien Comer being eye-gouged by a member of the Armagh sideline. Former Galway player Barry Cullinane and former Galway manager John O' Mahoney joined Keith this morning. Macnas are starting a new spectacle music troupe land are on the hunt for participants. If you are a brass/wind musician who has an interest in improvisation, experimental sounds, performance, and play and is excited about being part of outdoor spectacular events then there's an invitation to come join their weekly workshops happening in September 2022. Noeline Kavanagh, Artistic Director of Macnas and Matthew Berrill, brass and wind musical wizard spoke to Keith this morning. In Autumn 2021, veteran Irish journalist and broadcaster Charlie Bird publicly announced that he has motor neuron disease. Despite this devastating diagnosis, Charlie decided to organise a charity climb of Ireland's famous Holy Mountain, Croagh Patrick. His initiative would turn into a national event and raised almost €3 million for the charities close to his heart: Pieta and the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association. Now he has turned the experience of that day on Croagh Patrick into a book, Climb with Charlie Bird. Keith put some questions to Charlie this morning.

    What happened to arts organisations during the pandemic?

Beginning from the decision to partner with Britain's oldest working men's club, through the lockdown, to the pivot to serving the local area by becoming ‘a non means tested self-referral food bank', the book captures the heroic efforts of a community to survive whilst still being artists and making art. By telling the story of The Holbeck during the pandemic, the book raises profound questions about how we organise society and its welfare state, alongside the nature of art and culture. It will be essential reading across the arts, humanities, and social sciences, as well as for anyone interested in understanding why and how the arts matter to society.

RNIB Connect Radio's Toby Davey caught up with Maria Oshodi, Artistic Director and Chief Executive Officer of Extant to find out more about how the company is marking their 25th anniversary with the launch of Extant Evolve. Maria began by telling Toby how 25 years ago she along with a number of fellow blind / partially sighted Actors set up Extant, how the company has grown over the years with their innovative accessible theatre productions and also providing training opportunities in theatre for blind and partially sighted people. Then Maria explained to Toby how Extant Evolve will help to innovate the arts with blind and partially sighted talent at the top level of arts organisations and theatre companies. Toby and Maria then went on to discuss that now that we are seeing more blind and partially sighted and other disabled people on stage and screen whether we were at a turning point in opportunities for visually impaired people in theatre both on stage or behind the scenes and whether there is much more to do to make theatre and the arts more accessible for performers, creatives and the audience too.  For more details about Extant and their new exciting initiative Extant Evolve then do visit their website - https://extant.org.uk  (Image shows RNIB logo.

    I'm at one of my favorite theaters at the end of a long day rehearsing speakers for the TEDx stage. I'm packing up my stuff when Asa, the artistic director of the theater, says to me, “You should try out for our upcoming play this season. We have auditions next week.” Sure, I love the theater. But the last time I was in a play was back in elementary school. I am not an actor! I don't have any acting experience or training or know the first thing about auditions! I tell Asa that I'm planning on sticking to my speaking career. However, she insists that I'd be really good at it and to at least give it a try. One of my favorite things to say - which longtime listeners have heard several times - is, “Things will either go well, or you'll have a story to tell on the other side.”  And that's what I had to remind myself of at that moment. With my heart racing, I tell Asa I'll give it a go... and {spoiler alert} I've been performing ever since. My gentle (or not-so-gentle, depending on your perspective) encourager Asa is my special guest on today's episode. We answer questions such as: What aspects of bringing a character to life are important to storytelling? What small things incorporated into character portrayals can make them unique and identifiable? How can you ensure you always win at storytelling? Along the way, she also shares a “when I got in trouble” story involving her childhood fictional hero Pippi Longstocking, the play she did that necessitated a psychiatrist and the incarcerated to pull it off successfully, and a motto about failure you might want to adopt yourself. What you will learn in this episode: Why it's so important for a character to have an “alibi” Why the way you portray a character can be such a powerful story element What makes a character so much more visible in an audience's mind Who is Asa? Swedish-born actress, writer, and director Asa Olsson has had a passion for the theater since she appeared in Sleeping Beauty as a kindergartener. In her homeland, her long stage and TV career focused on issues around equality and social and political issues. It wasn't long before she realized that experience could serve to help girls and women get their voices heard. Asa immigrated to the U.S. in 1980 where she, her husband Randy, and their five-year-old daughter made the city of Carpinteria, CA their home. She spent over 30 years promoting the performing arts as a board member and the Artistic Director of the Carpinteria Community Theater (now called The Alcazar Theatre), including promoting female voices by building a drama program for girls aged 5 through 18. In addition to promoting the performing arts in her community, Asa has enjoyed working sporadically as an actress in Santa Barbara, College City, and even in her native Sweden. She's also served her community on the socio-political level, spending 10 years as a member of the Santa Barbara Public Health Department which resulted in a public smoking ban in Carpinteria.

    Janina Harding is a proud Meriam (Erub/Mer) woman, who is currently the Artistic Director of the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF). She has over thirty years of experience in and across the Indigenous art sector (ranging from leading various cultural and employment programs, who has experience in public broadcasting, boasting exceptional prowess in event management and programming).A daughter of Eleanor Harding, she hails from Melbourne, Victoria but currently lives in Cairns, Queensland where, for the last seven years, she has been reconnecting with her roots and actively bolstering the Indigenous art output of Queensland.Having served two terms on the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Arts Board of the Australia Council—as well as two terms on the Torres Strait Islander Advisory Board for the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC)— Harding brings a keen national focus, encapsulating contemporary and more traditional insights to her practice as a Cultural Practitioner and Worker.Prior to her move to Tropical North Queensland, from 2001-2015 Harding worked for the City of Melbourne, managing the Indigenous Arts Program. Throughout her tenure, she curated, established and produced the Indigenous Film Festival Blak Nite Cinema, and the Melbourne Indigenous Arts Festival. Harding also established the City of Melbourne's inaugural Indigenous Mentorship Program—opening the door for aspiring arts managers, directors and producers, providing professional networks with Melbourne's major cultural institutions.In more recent years, Harding assumed the post of Artistic Director of the CIAF. In year's prior to 2015, audience attendance to CIAF peaked at 27,000. Through Harding's reinvigorated and expanded programming (brining in new mediums/modes of art and expression, as well as diversifying the creative participation in CIAF), in 2016 visitation numbers soared to 50,000 (a steadily growing figure, until 2020). With Harding's unique stamp on the event, she has transformed CIAF as being greater than an Art Fair.CIAF is now celebrated as being Australia's premier Indigenous art fair, enjoying global interest and wide-reaching domestic acclaim. But, through Harding's influence, it has become a melting pot of inclusivity, embracing and empowering artists and communities, in celebrating the two cultures of this country's First Peoples, their artforms and ever-changing cultures.Janina Harding continues to embrace the broader arts industry, ever curious about creative endeavours and advances in contemporary art movements from across the country. This passion, for the arts and for Indigenous peoples, remains her driving force, forever inspiring her to forge new pathways for their longevity and success, and to inspire the broader arts industry to engage in best practice methods with Indigenous creatives.Recommendations throughout this episode:https://ciaf.com.auhttps://ciaf.com.au/people/janina-hardingWebsite: www.blackmagicwoman.com.auFollow us on Instagram - @blackmagicwomanpodcastThe Black Magic Woman Podcast is hosted by Mundanara Bayles and is an uplifting conversational style program featuring mainly Aboriginal guests and explores issues of importance to Aboriginal people and communities.

    We're celebrating Black Music Appreciation Month by revisiting my 2021 interview with MacArthur Fellow and artistic director of Silkroad Rhiannon Giddens.  A classically-trained singer,  banjo and fiddle-player, and composer, Rhiannon excavates the past to bring forgotten stories and music, particularly of African-Americans, into the present.  Giddens is a co-founder of the Grammy Award winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, which insisted reclaiming for Black musicians  a central and historically-accurate place in old-time music. She then went on to create solo albums of haunting beauty and power born of African-American struggles past and present. Giddens is, first and foremost, an artist determined to be of service which drives her commitment to unearth musical roots and put that knowledge of different musical traditions to good use.  In this podcast, Rhiannon talks about uncovering the Black roots in old-time music, the importance of National Heritage Fellow fiddler Joe Thompson to her musical lineage, the path to creating her opera Omar, the centrality of history on the margins to her music, and her plans to have Silkroad explore the multiplicity of musical worlds within the US.  Keywords: Rhiannon Giddens, Silkroad, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Joe Thompson, Omar
