Welcome to #UTWA - your weekly unstructured time with art.
In this episode, Sara and Sommer talk about sound design, vibrant arts communities, and how the findings from the National Assessment of Educational Progress compare with our own experiences. In addition, we are fun people who like bike parties and are interested in hosting air guitar championships.
