I generally have mixed feelings about clowns but am willing to make an exception for these delightful weirdos.

Pleased to present Maya Lane, artistic director of Bay Area dance/circus group Fou Fou Ha!

We discuss the age-old vaudevillian tradition of performance being a catalyst for joy, embracing the shadow self, the development of community, and the struggles of maintaining a livelihood for the creative forces that bring these experiences to the world!

Interview with Christine Shields about her illustrations for Voice of Witness’ new release, SIX BY TEN – Stories from Solitary – “SIX BY TEN: Stories from Solitary explores the mental, physical, and spiritual impacts of America’s widespread embrace of solitary confinement. Through stories from those subjected to solitary confinement, family members on the outside, and corrections officers, Six by Ten examines the darkest hidden corners of America’s mass incarceration culture and illustrates how solitary confinement inflicts lasting consequences on families and communities far beyond prison walls.
