langa dan ruop
Created by David Chavannes, langa dan ruop is an installation that comprises sound recordings and textual fragments from a pirate radio station 100,000 years in the future, extending an invitation to meditate on the sociopolitical and ecological legacies of colonization in the formerly British Caribbean.
The Sachs Program for Arts Innovation’s 2019 SHIP Intern, Tias Volker (C ’21), developed a map that highlights arts resources and centers across Penn’s campus. While not every resource could be included, The Sachs Program encourages you to use this map to explore the breadth of arts offerings at Penn.
