More Art is proud to present SMORGASBORD, a series of workshops, performances, and presentations led by the 2018-19 cohort of Engaging Artists fellows, including Ro Garrido, Nola Hanson, Zaq Landsberg, Manuel Molina Martagon, Julian Louis Phillips, Philip Santos Schaffer, and Candace Thompson.
SMORGASBORD will provide a sampling of the projects EA fellows have been incubating through the program for the past year, addressing a wide range of topics including: empathy through interactive performance; boxing as a pedagogical practice for trans youth; transformative-justice organizing; displacement in Bedford-Stuyvesant; food as a vehicle for conversation; urban foraging and the climate crisis; and biodegradable public sculptures commemorating the environmental disaster that is Newtown Creek.
ENGAGING ARTISTS (EA) is More Art’s Fellowship program for artists seeking to both develop and sustain their public art and socially-engaged practice. This one year Fellowship provides an infrastructure and laboratory for NYC-based emerging and underrepresented artists to gain a deeper understanding of the history of the field, incubate and present their work, collaborate with communities in shaping society, and build sustainable careers in the field of public art.
