St. Louis Public Radio’s Young Friends partnered with NPR’s Generation Listen to host a forum on the impact of community activism. It was a great opportunity for our young listeners to engage with one another, as well as the expert panel.
Sloup has been hosting monthly crowd-funding soup dinners in St. Louis since 2010. But the one on Dec. 8 at Climb So iLL (1419 Carroll St.), differed from the usual -- and not just because a gym staffer was clambering across the rock wall above the crowd. No arts groups presented proposals for bike-generated sound systems or giant murals. No votes were cast. There wasn’t even soup.
