Ants on a Log

Ants on a log web2 Ants on a log web 1

Ants on a Log is Anya Rose and Julie Beth. Playing “music for children and other childlike people,” their spirited harmonies and clever, concise songwriting engage both children and adults alike. The duo write music that songfully advocates for positivity, social justice, and silliness! In their daytime jobs, Julie is a music therapist, and Anya is an elementary science teacher at an all-boys school. Together as The Ants, they will put together a new show for families that is steeped in science and gender stereotypes. This project will emphasize the role of curiosity, questioning, qualitative data, and community-building in pursuit of science and problem-solving, rather than the typical didactic science class model. Ants on a Log will perform this show at the Rotunda November 13th, 2016 at 11am and 3pm, and November 19th at 11am.

DE-CODED: Art + Tech for Social Change

Leeway Foundation hosts the May Live Culture event at PhillyCAM! Live Culture is an open house and live TV production that happens on the first Friday of every month, curated by different arts and culture organizations. Since it’s Philly Tech Week, we’re focusing on local artists who utilize new media and technology to build alternate landscapes at the intersections of art and social change. Featuring presentations and conversations with poet and digital artist Andrea Walls (ACG ’14) and independent filmmaker M. Asli Dukan (ACG ’16, ’14, LTA ’16), we'll explore and answer questions like, How has technology enabled you to express an idea that couldn't have been conveyed otherwise? What conversations aren't happening in the space of creative technology?
