South of Fletcher podcast has officially wrapped! But you can still get all caught up here.

Once one of Southern California’s most important rail yards, this site will soon become the next urban California State Park, joining a patchwork of other river-adjacent green spaces that are shaping the course of LA River revitalization. Through personal interviews with people who have worked, lived and otherwise made their marks at this post-industrial site, Fonografia Collective explores some of LA’s biggest challenges, and speculates about what change at this site might mean for the rest of the city. Written and co-produced by Ruxandra Guidi and Clockshop, edited by Ibby Caputo and with music by Luis Guerra.

South of Fletcher Launches by Bear Guerra

Say hello to our new limited-run podcast, "South of Fletcher: Stories from the Bowtie"!

It's the story of a seemingly nondescript piece of land in northeast LA -- a former rail yard that is set to become a park. But it's also a meditation on whose voices are heard in discussions about the future of a city, whose histories become part of our collective memory, and the traces we leave behind when landscapes are altered and neighborhoods change. Done in conjunction with (and with thanks to) LA-based arts organization, Clockshop.

Our accompanying photo and video exhibit will be up at Occidental College's Weingart Gallery until November 4. You're all invited for the opening this Thursday, September 13th, 5-8 pm.
