Our Members, Fiscally Sponsored Artists, and other program participants represent a wide range of career stages and disciplines. We love them - and, as fellow artists, we're always inspired by them. With this monthly feature, we hope you'll feel the same way!
What's your name?
What do you do?
Dance maker, educator, Artistic Director of B3W Performance Group
What inspires you?
Social justice, forgiveness, and Undoing Racism – a program of The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond challenging participants to analyze the structures of power and privilege that hinder social equity, preparing them to be effective organizers for justice.
What are you proud of?
I am proud of being a collaborator among all the brilliant co-creators in B3W, a social justice art & performance collective. I am most proud that I get to work with them!
What is your goal?
To have the art we create make a difference - even if it is just by chipping away.
Do you have any advice for your fellow artists?
Take risks! Don't worry about being "good." Say what you gotta say and focus on that.
How does The Field help you?
The Field has helped me through fiscal sponsorship, workshops, and The Field Leadership Fund (FLF) – The Field’s 2015-2017 Fellowship program focused on offering professional development, compensation, and access to those who faced barriers to their advancement based on race, gender, and other identities.
