Conversation on the Culture of the Art


Featured in this episode are two trailblazing women who’ve dedicated ample time in the past few years “re-imagining Arizona” and its arts and culture community. Mary Stephens Director of Arizona State University’s Performance in the Borderlands initiative and owner of the Phoenix Hostel and Cultural Center, and Casandra Hernandez, Interpretation and Programs Coordinator at the Deer Valley Rock Art Center are passionate about creating dialogue and reflection around peoples’ interactions in the desert.  Their work, both individually and as a collaborative duo, has provided an innovative platform for many voices previously not heard here in the southwest. Their conversation with us focuses on their motivations for their work, what it means to collaborate as women and how being a woman is a powerful force for change – an omnipresent topic here at schmooze.
