The focus of Finding California Time is to document the stories of cultural producers in California—including artists, architects, designers, writers, policy makers and historians—as they interweave their family life with their work. The project is a collaboration between BROODWORK: Creative Practice and Family Life and SPAN’s Jules Rochielle (Social Practices Art Network), both organizations that have been collecting personal histories of cultural producers and have established web-archives of these narratives. By literally giving a voice to the under-acknowledged cultural producers in California who face the universal state of parenthood, we are able to interview a defined group of Californians that can speak to issues that engage all.
There are two parts to Finding California Time.
To formally launch Finding California Time, we shared the stories of Heidi Duckler, Renee Dake Wilson and Dan Goods---all Los Angeles-based cultural producers with families---in our 30 minute radio program on KTLK LA360. Information about the show here. Listen to the entire show here.
As a part of Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design’s retrospective exhibition Unfinished Business: 25 Years of Discourse in Los Angeles, we provided a series informal interviews of architects and urban designers who are parents.
