Eyebeam’s “Summer School” has invited me to host a workshop. Sign up!
Artists as Agents of Social Change:
Sign up for this series to learn how artists are working in a participatory way, using low-tech street-level actions, environmental solutions, and NYC institutions to promote social change. Participants will take part in actions led by artists representing the 10 years of Eyebeam’s history, and work with those artists during evening clinics to develop actions of their own to bring to the streets at the end of July.
This workshop series requires a 3 day commitment.
Part 1: Learn about the practice of 4 different artists and art collectives, and take part in group actions around NYC.
Adam Bobbette, Steve Lambert, neuroTransmitter (Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere) and Robert Ransick will all discuss their work in and with the public – all in an effort to promote social awareness and change.
– Saturday, July 14, 1:00 – 5:00 PM
– Discussion: 1-2 PM
