UNSETTLED SERIES: Sifting Through the Sediment
A Panel Discussion Featuring Guests from the Tilt Podcast: Unsettled Series
Dr. Alicia Inez Guzmán, SFAI Story Maps Fellows Diego Medina and Christian Gering, creators of the “Unsettled” Series for SFAI Tilt Podcast, invite back guests from the series to be in casual conversation together, answer audience questions, and dive deeper into some of the many nuanced topics addressed in the podcast.
In Santa Fe, as in many cities, the most public versions of history are made visible in monuments that reinforce conquest and colonization. Those, it seems, are the only stories worth knowing and celebrating. But whose voices are being left out? And what stories are being erased?
Featuring writer Dr. Alicia Inez Guzmán, and SFAI Story Maps Fellows Diego Medina and Christian Gering, this 9-part podcast unsettles what we think we know about Santa Fe and New Mexico’s past to help envision a more just future.
In Parts 1,2, and 3 of Unsettled Series, Axis Mundi, Santa Fe reckons with one monument and the moments leading to its downfall, with Heidi Brandow, Alma Castro, Darryl Wellington and Virgil Vigil.
The Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI), with support from Vital Spaces, presents Re-Centering Santa Fe: Social Structures, a temporary outdoor exhibition of freestanding installations and digital art pieces that address the themes of interconnectivity, empathy, and care. These themes reflect the social values that undergird COVID Safe Practices like wearing a face covering or mask in public spaces; maintaining a 6-foot distance from others; avoiding gatherings; protecting vulnerable populations by finding ways to connect without face-to-face contact; staying home; and frequent handwashing.

The September episode of Littleglobe TV was titled Epicenter and focused on the center of our town: Midtown! For the Epi-Center episode, the LGTV team and partners reached out to residents of Santa Fe, asking everyone to share photos, stories, songs, videos, and more, with us – about the center of our town: Midtown.
The resulting videos, songs, stories, jokes, and other elements were shared on Facebook and YouTube Live on September 17, in a 45-minute community-created show. Watch here!
