Radio Show On Art

This week at Catch Da Flava we talked about some Big Stuff. We began with a discussion about the recent shootings in Regent Park and how powerless that can make us feel.

Featured Hosts Isaac, Leyia and Stephanie really got honest about how hard Big Stuff and Big Feelings can be, especially when we don’t have the tools to deal with them.

That’s when we got into the power of Art. Catch Da Flava Hosts Calvin and Onik asked our Featured Hosts powerful questions about how Art can free you from really bad Big Stuff and Big Feelings.

Isaac talked about how funny stories and jokes can be a way to solve problems. Stephanie opened up about her passion for singing and dancing, and how it has made difficult times in her life easier to handle.

In an amazing act of spirit and courage, Leyia read an amazing poem she wrote. Catch Da Flava will be posting it next week.

The most amazing part of our Featured Host panel was the realization that every major civil rights moment travelled in songs, poems, stories, visual art and plays to overcome oppression. The idea that a single person with a brush, or a pen and paper, can change the world with art.
