New Mexico in Focus will give viewers the chance to get a behind-the-scenes look of the interactive art project, Meow Wolf in Santa Fe. This week, the show will discuss how local artists are involved with the project as well as how it is contributing to the local economy.

NMiF will feature a story on Donovan Smith, a young Albuquerque entrepreneur, who makes soap by hand. Hear his inspiring story about why he donates his time and products to a local homeless shelter.

Also in this week’s episode, Producer Sarah Gustavus sits down with “Longmire” author Craig Johnson to talk about his novels, inspiration for his characters, and his writing process.

Continuing their series “Small Towns, Big Change” with the Solutions Journalism Network, NMiF will discuss reports on cannabis and economic development, the digital divide in education, and new efforts to track and treat opiate abuse in northern New Mexico.
