Ways to Connect

Penumbra Theatre

Abby Swafford and Devery Fairbanks both live in Bemidji and both answered the call to submit their unique perspectives on American life to the Penumbra Theatre's My America writing contest.  They stopped by the KBXE studio to talk about the experience of becoming a finalist in the statewide competition.  Click on the link to hear the conversation! 

Master printmaker, educator and inventor Dan Welden has traveled the world sharing his non-toxic solarplate printing process.  He recently stopped by the technology, art and design department at Bemidji State University.   

It's the first Friday of the month and that means we check in with the arts scenes across the listening area.

This Saturday at 5pm Northern Community Radio will broadcast another edition of the Great Northern Radio Show LIVE from the Thompson Recital Hall on the Bemidji State University campus.  Aaron Brown hosts the variety show, creates most of the skits in the production, and organizes the musical acts.  We spoke with Aaron about what goes into planning it and how it all unfolds.

As a nation, we've grieved together in the wake of the most recent school shooting rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.   As a news source, Northern Community Radio has delivered NPR reporting of the aftermath to our listeners every day since.  In northern Minnesota, events such as these hit home in a particularly unsettling way.  It happened here, too.
