Tilt Podcast / Episode 11

Finding Midtown

The College of Santa Fe and Santa Fe University Art and Design (SFUAD) has been a place of learning and teaching for so many people over the decades. In Episode 11, we explore the Midtown property as a place of personal growth, opportunity and bonding, art-making and performance, and a growing center for film, among many other things.

In this episode we discuss the intentions behind the Midtown Scavenger Hunt which was created by faculty and/or alumni of SFUAD who have a long history with the site. The Scavenger Hunt was launched in late 2021 and continues from dust to dawn as a DIY way for anyone to explore the Midtown site, learn about the hidden gems and stories, and to create a link between the past, present, and future of the site. Tune in for what this place means to the creators of the Scavenger Hunt and how it contributes to imagining an equitable future for the property.
