American Arts Incubator artist Kendal Henry in Papua New Guinea

From March 7th to April 1st, 2015 Kendal Henry is on-the-ground in Papua New Guinea working with the local community to oversee a series of public art projects that focus on the topic of women's empowerment. His activities include attending the Women's Forum that is being sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Port Moresby, leading a training workshop that will result in a number of small grant awards to local artists, and creating his own public art project. Both the University of PNG and the YWCA are partnering with the American Arts Incubator to explore ideas on how art can be used as a tool for social change in Papua New Guinea.
