Nov. 10, 2022: Folk Fest's return, urban design & more

This episode of TA(P) features segments on architecture, public art, film and music

This week's episode of the Thursday Arts (P)review — where the "p" is parenthetical because we look both forward and back — includes the following:

  • An excerpt from a longer interview with author and architect Charles Durrett conducted by SPR's Rebecca White. Durrett discusses community-first architecture and his book A Solution to Homelessness in Your Town.
  • Another excerpt from a longer interview with visual artists Lisa Soranaka and Mallory Battista. The community tile-making workshops for their sculpture "Sun Shine Through" will take place this Saturday (Nov. 12) at The Hive.
  • A fresh interview with Sylvia Gobel, the organizer of Spokane's Fall Folk Festival. The festival is returning this weekend (Nov. 12 & 13) after a prolonged hiatus on account of COVID precautions.
  • A recent performance by pianist and Whitworth student Drew Bair, who played Henry Thacker "Harry" Burleigh's "A New Hiding Place" for a live Piano Bench show highlighting the work of Black composers. Their concert is this Saturday (Nov. 12) and will livestream on the Whitworth Music Department's YouTube channel.
  • A preview of this week's Movies 101 with a brief review of the new dark comedy The Banshees of Inisherin starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson.

Like the intro music? It's "Opening Theme" by Camper Van Beethoven.

Thursday Arts (P)review airs every Thursday at 12pm on KPBX with a roundup of arts-related news and information from across the Inland Northwest.
