CITY POP EGLESTON CLOSES
My yearlong residency at CityPOP Egleston ends on 31 May 2017. The residency supported much creative productivity, fruitful collaborations and community engagement with my artistic practice. Stay tuned for a more in-depth reflection upon the year of working in a shared studio and performance space in Egleston Square.
MARMION FILM FESTIVAL
The Marmion Film Festival was held at Marmion Center for the Arts on 27 May 2017, where Voyeuges Episodes I & II screened along with videos and animations by Kyle Browne, PJ Goodwin, Frank Hegyi, Carly Lieberman, and Rene Dongo. The festival was a smashing success!
I received a City of Boston grant from their new Opportunity Fund to support my community engagement work at CityPOP Egleston, specifically my Games to Cultivate a Creative Attitude monthly workshop series. In addition to a general audience of community members and artist peers, I held a workshop with fellows and faculty from the nearby Urbano Project to help generate ideas for their Spring semester work involving a Civic Nomadic Sculpture and addressing the programming theme: The Commons / The Other.
