In the 32nd episode of Cambridge Uncovered, host Priyanka Deo of NeighborMedia.org explores the struggles of music and art education. A large amount of research shows that the arts is closely tied to almost everything we as a nation demand from our schools: academic achievement, social development, emotional development and civic engagement, just to name a few. Why then is it typically the first to go? To hopefully answer this question, we have assembled a panel of experts:

  • Nimah Gobir, a visual artist and co-host and producer of the Palette Podcast

  • Joceyln Bonadio, a musician, teaching artist and other co-host and producer of the Palette Podcast

  • Emily Dexter, teacher, researcher, and currently on the Cambridge School Committee

  • Adriana Thomas, teacher working on a social impact project dealing with English language and literacy
