MADE Incubator Projects

#ProjectAIM

Created by Jay-Marie Hill, a Black, Queer Artist & Organizer eager to share the tools of the Movement with the masses, #ProjectAIMformed in early 2017 hoping to fill a void left gaping by social media and other emerging technologies. With funding support from Emerging Arts Professional’s MADE Grant to cover supplies, registration subsidization, catering and facilitation fees, a learning container was created for well-meaning onlookers to practice what it meant to be not just “Allies” to social movements, but “Allies in Motion”.

#DignityInProcess

EAP is a network of Bay Area arts workers and administrators focused on equity, sustainability, and creativity in the arts field. As one of our values, we are interested in integrating arts practices back into the labor and administration of the arts. As such, we are partnering with artist/activist ChE to beta test #DignityInProcess: a pilot for Afro-Indigenous Liberatory Practice (AILP) and an opportunity for the healing tradition of the ring shout to engage a wide audience, while directly collaborating with current justice movements and providing an arts-based cultural equity framework for Bay Area arts administrators. Through this lens, EAP and ChE will host workshops in AILP, present Art Actions in Black-owned and African Diasporic businesses, gather Wisdom Councils, and integrate AILP into EAP’s core programs.
