About Dawne Langford:

After many years working in public media as a broadcast TV editor, she transitioned to roles as a producer, working on independent documentaries Check It, Kandahar Journals, and Finding Joseph I. Dawne also launched a curatorial initiative dedicated to centering traditionally marginalized viewpoints in public discourse around artistic creation and representation. New projects in the works address hidden and obscured histories.

About Random Playlist:
Moving pictures have been a source of inspiration and common cultural vocabulary for creators in all disciplines since the beginning of cinema. RANDOM PLAYLIST will transform the WPA into a micro-cinema in July and early-August, inviting four cultural producers from widely differing practices to share a selection of moving images that they look to for inspiration, elements of visual language, and clues to broader cultural concerns. Join us each Thursday night as WPA inaugurates a new playlist with drinks, casual conversation, and an informal discussion of the selections, hosted by James Huckenpahler.
