Academy Podcast: Art at 1010 (Ben Dicke, Aisha Jackson, Paris Richardson)

Welcome to The Chicago Academy for the Arts podcast Art at 1010! The faculty and students of The Academy hope this podcast inspires engagement and trust in the arts. Each episode we will speak with educators, professionals, and one another about the importance of art in the world today and what motivates us to create.

Our first episode features Ben Dicke, Chair of the Theatre Department at The Academy, speaking with actor and singer Aisha Jackson about her role in Frozen on Broadway, sleeping on friends’ couches in New York City, and landing that first gig out of college. Aisha used her arts high school education to take her to the University of Colorado where she studied theatre and dance. Joining Ben and Aisha is Academy alum Paris Richardson (Musical Theatre ‘18).
