Peabody faculty member Wendel Patrick has won a $25,000 NEA award to support the WYPR Radio program “Out of the Blocks.” Dedicated to documenting the stories of Baltimore residents through audio interviews and photography of one neighborhood block at a time, the project will expand this documentary model to as many as six cities across the United States. In partnership with local radio stations in each location, as many as six hour-long episodes will be produced and distributed to public radio stations nationwide through the Public Radio Exchange. The program also will be accessible for free through an online platform, accompanied by video footage and photographs of the program’s participants.
