Podcast: Creative Conversations

Check out our latest podcast from Clocktower Radio documenting our Creative Conversations meeting on Wednesday, October 25, hosted at the SUNY Educational Opportunity Center in Jamaica. We were joined by many Southeast Queens Artist Alliance (SEQAA) members as well as the curatorial staff of No Longer Empty. Artists also came from across the city to be a part of the dialogue and learn more about what's happening in Jamaica and with southeast Queens-based artists. No Longer Empty is currently working in partnership with York College and members of SEQAA to launch the first Southeast Queens Biennale in Spring 2018.

On Wednesday, April 26, Creative Conversations in Jamaica, Queens, was joined by Sante Antonelli, Director of Business Services at the Queens Economic Development Center and founding director of the Made in Queens (MiQ) initiative. Antonelli shared his experiences creating a storefront business for Queens-based artisans using a coop business model. Many of the participating artists have been QCA Artist Peer Circle participants and have recently founded the Southeast Queens Artist Alliance (SEQAA). SEQAA's mission is to organize Jamaica-based artists in an effort to create a new studio work space for artists in the community.
