Goldman Environmental Prize
/

Destiny Watford is a winner of the 2016 Goldman Environmental Prize for her work with Free Your Voice, a grassroots organization she formed to oppose construction of an incinerator in Curtis Bay. The Goldman Prize is awarded to one person on each of the six inhabited continents. Destiny Watford, at age 20, is this year’s winner for North America. She joins us to talk about lighting a fire for justice in South Baltimore. 

And, today is graduation day for students at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Sammy Hoi has been at the helm of MICA for the past two years, and he has quickly established himself as one of the region’s most imaginative arts leaders. How does an art school fit into the fabric of Baltimore, and how does the city inform the training of the next generation of artists and creators?

Plus, J Wynn Rousuck has her review of BrouHaHa on at the Theater Project.
