Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie take a look at two different kinds of poets who have channelled trauma into their art. First, poet Mary Anna Dunn visits the show for the first time. She has taken letters from her (slave owning) ancestors and used them as inspiration for her first poetry chapbook Letters to Littles’ Mills, in anticipation of her release reading at the New Dominion Bookshop. We talk to Mary Anna about her history as an artist and about her family history that she’s worked into her art. Next Flora Lark and JonaNoelle, the spoken work duo The Fire Tigers, also make their first appearance on the show. You can catch them at Fire & Smoke, a joint show with improv group Big Blue Door at The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative. Flora Lark and JonaNoelle talk about their performance art that encourages people to acknowledge trauma, address trauma, and heal from trauma. Two sets of artists are moved to then move us this week on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Some of the most contentious and significant issues facing the United States today involve immigration. It’s not just, or even primarily, about the “dreamers” (undocumented people who were brought here as minors). The issues involve more basic questions, such as what the level of overall (legal and illegal) immigration should be and what categories of immigrants should be preferred and the national-security and economic implications of various immigration policies.

Farrell and O’Brien speaking at the Senior Center in Charlottesville.

In this podcast, Cathleen Farrell of the National Immigration Forum and Matt O’Brien of the Federation for American Immigration Reform speak to the issues facing immigration policy makers today.

The National Immigration Forum is a network of faith, law enforcement, business and veterans that seeks to help new arrivals attain the opportunities, skills and status to reach their fullest potential. The Forum advocates for policies that keep us secure, respect the rule of law, help grow our economy and are compassionate.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform works for immigration policies that include better border management, lower levels of overall immigration (about 300,000 per year as opposed to the current more than a million) and a greater focus on highly skilled immigrants.

 

Cathleen Farrell is The National Immigration Forum’s Director of Communications. Cathleen has more than 30 years’ experience in advocacy and strategic communications. She is a native of Canada and a graduate of Montreal’s McGill University.
Matt O’Brien is responsible for managing The Federation for American Immigration Reform’s research activities. He has an extensive background in immigration, including with the federal government. He holds a law degree from the University of Maine and a master’s in National Security Affairs from the Institute of World Politics.

 

Farrell and O’Brien spoke at the Wednesday June 13, 2018 meeting of the Senior Statesmen of Virginia. The meeting was held at the Senior Center in Charlottesville. Following the presentation, questions were taken from the audience. The program was moderated by SSV board member Terry Cooper.
