Activate Equity 2020

Saturday, March 7, 2020 at El Barrio's Artspace PS109

Activate Equity is our annual gathering of artists, cultural workers, activists, and educators tackling the question, "How can we create a more equitable arts sector in New York City?" This program is action oriented, with multiple ways for participants to engage and contribute - ultimately aiming to introduce new models, information, techniques, resources and connections. With this year's theme, Reprogramming The Broadcast, our aim is to shift conventional mindsets that affect artists and marginalized people.

Spring 2020 Fieldwork Open Trial Day + 6-Week Fieldwork Workshop

Monday, March 30 (Open Trial Day) + Mondays, April 6 to May 11 (Full Workshop) at Molloy Studios

Reach new audiences, test out works-in-progress in a supportive studio environment, and get motivated by a weekly deadline - all when you sign up for Fieldwork! Fieldwork offers artists the time and space to take risks, share works at any stage of their progress, and to exchange artist-to-artist feedback guided by experienced facilitators. Our unique workshop model is great for choreographers, composers, playwrights, poets, spoken word performers, and more! Our Spring session will be facilitated by James Scruggs.

The Fine Print on Cancellations:  Refunds for events require 3 business days advance cancellation. Participants who cancel one full business day in advance will receive a credit for a future program within the calendar year. Participants who cancel with less than a full business day’s notice will lose their fee, unless the cause is something we can all agree is an emergency. While unlikely, Field program facilitators, dates, and locations are subject to change. Thank you!
