Guest is Alexandra Shabtai, founder of SPArt, a new funding initiative that supports Los Angeles-based Social Practice Art projects. SPArt provides financial resources to artists who intend to create social change through socially engaged art.

In 2014, SPArt awarded inaugural grants of $10,000 each to three artists whose proposed projects engage audiences, promote participation, and foster social change. Grantees were Christina Sanchez for her project Cocina Abierta (Open Kitchen), Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle for her project the Kentifrican Museum of Culture: Re-imagining Identity, and Dorit Cypis for her project Conflict Revolution.

Hosted by Kara Tomé, GYST Radio Manager and Independent Curator.  GYST DO IT! promotes artists and creatives who take the initiative to present innovative arts programming for the public through starting a collaborative, an independent space or a non-profit organization.
