Immigration Portraits: Voices from Denny
Broadcast on KBCS 91.3 FM July 1-5

Denny International Middle School students and staff come from diverse backgrounds and represent many nations. This spring 8th grade Washington state history students at Denny interviewed staff and students, capturing their immigration stories. The students worked with Jack Straw teaching artists at their school and in the Jack Straw studios to create Immigration Portraits: Voices from Denny, a series of radio pieces documenting the immigration experiences of Denny students and staff.

KBCS 91.3 FM will broadcast all eight radio pieces created through this project next week, July 1-5 at 4:20pm. On July 4th they will broadcast four stories as part of their special Independence Day programming. Tune in and celebrate the region's new citizens naturalized at Seattle Center on the 4th!

About Jack Straw Productions

Jack Straw Productions is a non-profit multidisciplinary arts organization dedicated to the creation, production and presentation of all forms of audio art. Jack Straw Productions' history began in 1962, when a group of artists, educators, and journalists formed the Jack Straw Foundation, which founded KRAB-FM, one of the first community radio stations in the United States. Jack Straw continues to assist artists, educational institutions, and community organizations that are interested in working creatively with sound through our audio production services and recording studios, artist residency programs, educational programs, and community partnerships. Jack Straw Productions has called Seattle's University District home since 1989.

Jack Straw Productions gratefully acknowledges the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, 4Culture, WA State Arts Commission, National Endowment for the Arts, ArtsFund, The Seattle Foundation, and individual contributors for their support of our arts programs.
