Show Don’t Tell: A Symposium with The Fellowship for Utopian Practice and The Performance Project’s 2018 Artists-in-Residence is an opportunity to get a close-up and participatory view into the projects of artists working at the intersection of their imaginations and civic participation.
On April 24th and 25th, Fellows from The Fellowship for Utopian Practice will present their projects and research. The Fellowship for Utopian Practice is a process-based program that supports artists at the seed phase of project development, allowing artists and creative practitioners to create cross-sector modes of activating and collaborating with their communities and the general public. Learn about the unique perspectives that the Culture Push Fellows and their collaborators bring to each urgent topic.
On April 26th The Performance Project’s AIRs will present excerpts of their projects and share their experiences connecting to the communities associated with University Settlement. Learn about the genesis of these projects and how they are evolving through community attuned practices.
