I haven’t been able to write on the Musical Urbanism blog for awhile, thanks to the crush of teaching, grading, and overseeing surveys for the city of Poughkeepsie’s community food assessment, all of which have peaked in the month of April.  (Twitter has been a good time-suck, too, I’ll admit.)  So I’m excited to be participating at a panel on media and public culture in Poughkeepsie tomorrow night, organized by community arts activist Matthew Slaats.  I’ll be trying out some of the ideas about arts-based urban revitalization that I articulated in my last post.
