ABOUT THE PROJECT
Artists Elevating Immigrant Narratives is a series of projects and events that elevate the narrative of immigration in America and engage art and activism in an environment that nurtures collaboration and results in meaningful action.
This project was created to have few elements that are set in stone to allow it to develop over time, together with the participating artists. The intent is to offer a platform for artists to gather, collaborate, and share work as organically as possible.
New opportunities coming soon!
Round one of Artists Elevating Immigrant Narratives culminated May 2019. The nine participating artists developed collaborative multi-disciplinary works within the theme of elevating immigrant narratives. Each of the artists are either immigrant artists, children of immigrants, or closely connected to the immigrant community. Works featured photo, video, dance, music, and theater.
