Next week: WBEZ’s Tony Sarabia hosts conversation with “Working in America”‘s creative team
On December 8, WBEZ’s Tony Sarabia will sit down for a conversation with the creative team behind Project&’s “Working in America,” a new multimedia initiative that explores the challenges and triumphs of working in America today. Inspired by Studs Terkel’s 1974 book “Working,” the initiative includes three components: an exhibit at the Harold Washington Library Center that features stories and photographs of 24 everyday workers; a radio series on NPR, “Working: Then and Now;” and an online archive called “Your Working Story,” where members of the public can upload their own stories and photographs.
Who will be there?
Media personalities and members of the “Working in America” creative team, including:
- Host of “Morning Shift,” Tony Sarabia
- Project& President and Artistic Director Jane M. Saks, who conceived and created the initiative
- Radio Diaries Executive Producer Joe Richman, who co-produced the radio series
- Studio Design Director at Studio Gang, Claire Cahan, who helped design the exhibit
- And participation from Founder and Principal of Studio Gang, Jeanne Gang, who oversaw the design of the exhibit
