Coming up on the next episode of The Local Show:
The mission of communityworks, inc. is to assist individuals of all abilities to live, work and play in the community. Twenty years ago, Janet Williams founded communityworks, inc. to help traumatic brain injury patients get back to their community rather than into an assisted living facility. Nick Haines welcomes her to The Local Show to discuss the rewards and challenges of achieving her mission.
In celebration of Alphapointe Association for the Blind’s 100th anniversary, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art has been offering monthly tours for people who are blind or visually impaired. The Local Show tags along on one of the tours and gets a first hand perspective on the impact these tours are having.
Long time music promoter Chris Fritz has been orchestrating the Kanrocksas Music Festival since construction began on the Kansas Speedway. The two day event brings together some of the biggest names in the music industry including Eminem, Muse and The Black Keys. Kathy Quinn sits down with Fritz to get a unique perspective on the realization of this concert promoter’s dream.
Last month, Union Station hosted Maker Faire to allow DIYers to show off things they have created themselves. From robots to homemade clothes, the creativity of area residents was on display. Now, The Local Show welcomes you along to take a look.
