AmericanArtsIncubator.org is now live!
Here at ZERO1 we are kicking off the New Year with a brand new website for the American Arts Incubator, our international artist exchange program planned in partnership with the U.S. State Departments Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Take a peek at americanartsincubator.org and learn more about the hybrid training lab and public art production workshop that addresses community issues through cross cultural art collaborations. You'll be able to follow Kendal Henry as he works with communities in Papua New Guinea to explore how art can be a tool to empower women, or see how Xiaowei Wang addresses economic empowerment in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia via digital mapping. So read, share, and follow the artists, starting with Kendal Henry, who will be on the ground in Papua New Guinea on March 7th!
As the first round of artists prepare to go abroad this Spring, we are already looking ahead to 2016 and are thrilled to announce the participating countries for the next round. In Spring of 2016, four new American Arts Incubator artists will be selected to travel to China, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam where they will team up with youth and underserved populations to inspire creative ideas for community engagement through art programs. In the next few months we will be opening up a call for proposals to select the next four artists. Stay tuned!
