The 2022-23 Fellowship will focus on one of our four Affinity Topics: Regenerative Practices. Cohort XII will engage in a series of virtual and in-person workshops to cultivate healing from the harm caused by working within white institutions. Participants will engage in communal artistic expression to heal trauma derived from standards of professionalism for arts workers and exploring radical honesty in the face of hierarchical hypocrisy.
Beyond wound recovery, Cohort XII seeks regeneration by breaking down the idea that art is a commodity and amplifying the experiences of BIPOC artists in a capitalistic system. Together we hope to reimagine the arts sector with the needs and dreams of BIPOC arts workers at the center.
