    • Town Hall for Artist Census 11/10/2011

      Local Artists + COAHSI + Paul Nagle and Lise Brenner from The Cultural Strategies Initiative met to discuss what an "Artist Census" would look like and the successes and challenges of the local arts scene(s). Q: How will an "Artist Census" help our community? A: Gathering and interpreting information on artists helps organizations like COAHSI and movers and shakers make the case for art and get political support on local and national levels. Current census data does not fully capture the number of artists in New York (or nationwide). We are painfully undercounted, so some elected officials don't think we count! This effort is a pilot for a NATIONAL EFFORT to get artists to stand up and be counted. To get involved, email info@statenislandarts.org! www.statenislandarts.org

                Arriving in the midst of what a young Shawn Carter once characterized as "too much West Coast dick-licking," Wu-Tang's '36 Chambers' was the Eastside story many had hoped for: proof that New York rap artists could still commercially compete with their chronic-puffing counterparts from the land of the locs. A nine-man crew of hungrier-than-thou rhyme renegades and cast-offs. Jarringly grimy production informed by old school Times Square kung fu flicks. And a genius masterplan that no boyband designer could've ever come up with. The foundation was laid for a hip hop subgenre/industry unto itself. A new world. A Wu world. Or to quote the Chef Raekwon: "The Wu got somethin’ that I know that everybody wanna hear. ’Cause I know I been waiting to hear it." Hear them in conversation with journalist/author, Alvin 'Aqua Boogie' Blanco.
