Dance Initiative is sponsoring a residency the week of May 22 to May 27, for two special guests. KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh spoke with professional performer Marielis Garcia who, along with David Norsworthy of Toronto, Canada, will be co-leading two community dance workshops at the Launchpad. The artists seek to choreograph an essential "snap-shot" of Carbondale to weave into a larger, internationally-inspired creative endeavor. Registration is at danceinitiative.org.

In a money-grubbing art marketplace, Robert Burch, a local glass artist, has a somewhat purist approach to his art and the marketing of it. Robert curated part of the current exhibition at the Launchpad, which features nine local glass artists, including himself. Luke Nestler spoke to him as he was preparing the unveiling of a new mobile glass kiln for First Friday.

Thoughtful answers to timeless questions, an articulate glass blower, and a local singer/songwriter on this week's Express Yourself.

Amy Kimberly from Carbondale Arts was our guest on this morning's Nonprofit Spotlight. She says: "We feel these airwaves are important, they connect us, they get information out there that's important, they allow creativity and freedom. There are so many kids that have grown up here on KDNK who are absolutely some of my most favorite adults.  They are the ones that are holding the spirit of the community for the future. I really think that KDNK is a huge part of that. We hope people keep this station thriving."
