Artist-Run Culture Artist-run culture, or the creation of artist-run, artist generated, artist-focused spaces, projects, and opportunities, is a response to the particular needs of artists- a way to generate community, spark dialogue, to innovate and collaborate. These all feed a dynamic critical conversation that keeps art alive for artists and for the community at large. My interest in collaboration extends from my own work, in my work as an educator and as curator, where I can bring diverse ideas into a space to generate new meaning. In addition to the projects here, in 2012 I started a collaborative workspace residency program at MAPSpace. See info at the residency page.
