Wattz Up! A Yollocalli Arts Reach Radio Production
Airs: Every Saturday 12-2pm (CST)
Wattz Up! is a youth produced and hosted talk show broadcast live from Studio Y in Little Village. Young people share their thoughts on the latest events, curious factoids and favorite jams sprinkled with some sass, wit and giggles.
In this edition, we present a bilingual podcast as part of “The Greater Lawndale Healthy Work Project” in partnership with the University of Illinois Chicago School of Public Health and Yollocalli Arts Reach. The 2-part podcast exhibits stories from 15 individuals living in the communities of North and South Lawndale, discussing the unsafe working conditions and employment difficulties apparent in these neighborhoods as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Followed by a 30 minute Music Jamz filled with adorableness from the “OOfers” at Cardenas Elementary School in Little Village. Enjoy!
