You all probably know that we here at the Center for Artistic Activism regularly train Activists to create more like Artists. But you might not know that we also train Artists to strategize more like Activists.
We’ve done these Art Action Academy workshops everyplace from MFA programs in Portland, Oregon to NYC public schools to even as far away as St Petersburg, Russia, but we’ve never been able to do a FREE and PUBLIC workshop. Until now!
In collaboration with the awesome Queens Museum, and funded by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, we’ll be running an AAA workshop this Fall on 6 consecutive Saturdays afternoons and, on the 7th weekend, we will brainstorm, build and carry out a collaborative art action.
If you are interested, and will be in NYC in October and November, please think about applying. It’d be great to work with you!
