About this project
Whoop Dee Doo is finally coming to Baltimore! Hurrah! Yippie! Bravo! For those of you not hip to it, Whoop Dee Doo is a non-profit faux public access television show that is lead by approximately twenty Kansas City-based artists and volunteers. Whoop Dee Doo hosts live, free shows and workshops with various communities and under-served youth groups.
And as you may have noticed in the amazing video above, Whoop Dee Doo engages the most drastically diverse audiences and collaborates with a wild range of performers from science teachers and Celtic bagpipers to clogging troupes, drill teams, punk bands and drag queens – all in the attendance of wide-eyed children!!! The presence of this chaotic mix is an awkward, yet endearing experience, embracing a huge range of tastes and sensibilities, and stripping away divisions between high and low art. Whoop Dee Doo strives to break down barriers between age/ gender/ culture/ sub-culture AND form and foster unique collaborations between unlikely pairings of community members, which then blossom into exceptional and meaningful interactions.
AND THOUGH WE ARE ABLE TO BRING ALL OF THIS AWESOMENESS TO BALTIMORE CITY- WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP! Baltimore is filled with amazing talent and a long list of incredible organizations that would be perfect matches for a Whoop Dee Doo show- and so we need a bit more dough to be able to invite as many performers and collaborators as we’d like as well as make sure we have all the equipment we need to put on a great show- SO PLEASE DONATE AND HELP US MAKE THIS PROJECT THE WILDEST SUCCESS EVER!
Whoop Dee Doo will be in Baltimore in April and will unleash the talent show at City Arts in Greenmount West on Thursday, April 26 and will continue the fun the following night by hosting a block party to celebrate Station North’s Final Friday for the month! So, again, help us make it amazing! AND MAKE SURE TO STOP BY AND SEE US IN APRIL!
Project orchestrated by MICA Curatorial Practice MFA 2013 candidates, Catherine Akins, Deana Haggag, and Matt Spalding with support from the Station North Arts and Entertainment District and the lovely folks at City Arts!
