Artist-Run Culture Artist-run culture, or the creation of artist-run, artist generated, artist-focused spaces, projects, and opportunities, is a way to generate community, spark dialogue, to innovate and collaborate. Collaboration feeds a critical conversation that keeps art dynamic for artists and for the community at large. My interest in collaboration extends from my own work as an educator and as curator, where I bring diverse ideas and people 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.
