As we embark on the fifth year of our Fellowship program, celebrate with us by reflecting together on where we’ve been and where the field of socially engaged art is going. Meet our new Director of Programs Prerana Reddy; watch selections from FIELDWORKS, our short documentary film series; and participate in a story circle that will help inform our future by reflecting on three key issues central to the sustainability and evolution of socially engaged art:
  • Describe a project that made socially engaged art publicly visible in an interesting or effective way.
  • Tell us about how a socially engaged art project taught you something that changed the way you see, think, live or work.
  • Describe a support mechanism for socially engaged art that you’d like to see more widely adapted (or avoided!).

Following the exchange, please join us for a rooftop party with drinks, snacks, and conversation.

This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited! Please RSVP to rsvp@abladeofgrass.org. Due to the intimate nature of this program’s story circle format, we’ve opted not to live stream. If you’d like to submit responses to the prompts above, stay tuned for a survey to be circulated after the program! We’d love to hear your stories.

We’re grateful that this program is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; the support of the American Chai Trust; and, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
