Sabriye Tenberken - Revisited

SabriyePic.jpgThis week we revisit our conversation with Sabriye Tenberken - a woman who gives new meaning to activism and inspiration. Born in Cologne, Germany, she became blind at age 12. A trip to Tibet as a young adult was life-changing. Sabriye, along with Paul Kronenberg, founded Braille Without Borders, a world-wide organization that creates training programs and Braille book printing houses. The two are also the co-directors and co-founders of Kanthari, an international institute for social visionaries based in Kerala, South India.

Sandi Klein's Conversations with Creative Women returns with an all new show next Tuesday.

She and her staff are expanding the 187 year old Museum's community-oriented mission through digital projects. The newest initiative, part of the Bloomberg Connects Program, will have staff members stationed at a hub using an app to field questions from visitors (in real time) as they move through the galleries. It's fascinating, exciting and cutting edge....and you can hear all about it.

Rebroadcast - Anna Cummins

Anna1.jpegBottle.jpgMost of what we eat, drink, use every day of our lives comes packaged in petroleum plastic, which is designed to last forever. Only a paltry 5% of the plastics produced is recovered... a fact certainly not lost on the 5 Gyres Institute, which researches plastic pollution across the world's oceans, while engaging communities in finding solutions. You can't afford to miss this conversation with Anna Cummins, the group's Executive Director and co-founder.
