There is a radio interview just published on KFAI, where I speak with Abdirizak Bihi about arts engagement in the Somali community, and my work with Hassan Nor. It's Bihi's show, called "The Somali Radio that Speaks Funny English". You can find it here -- http://kfai.org/news/2017/0
2/59519 (the entire interview is one hour, and a short clip appears, also, at the bottom of the page).
There is also a recent story in TC Daily Planet -- https://www.tcdailyplanet.nThe woman who spoke to the press for this article was so enthusiastic when I introduced her to Nor's art shortly before his exhibit at Third Place Gallery that she claims to have curated the exhibit. Her role was actually only to introduce the artists to our audience on the evening of the event, and had nothing to do with curating. I curated the exhibit with assistance from the artist's daughter, Farhia, and the Somali writer who lives in Sweden, Awes Osman. I'm still trying to get the paper to make a correction, but I don't know if that will happen anytime soon. Other than this error, it's a nice story - especially hearing the words of the artist and his family members who helped create this exhibition.
