Episode 013 features an interview with Shelley Lowenberg-DeBoer, former café owner, former administrator for Tippecanoe Arts Federation, Morton Community Center, and longtime cultural advocate. Shelley’s presence in the Lafayette-West Lafayette community has inspired a great deal of innovation and collaboration and spiritedness. She discusses the challenges and successes of growing the arts in this area and the continuing projects of which she has been a part.
You can find a link to one of those projects, the Community Historic Project Support (CHiPS) West Lafayette, on its Facebook page here:
This week's "Look Up":
Shelley shared a trio of videos she returns to regularly for good grooves and inspiration, including:
“Sweet Thang” by Rufus featuring Chaka Khan
Kristin Chenoweth and Sarah Horn, “For Good”
and “Vide Cor Meum,” from the movie Kingdom of Heaven
