Announcing | Participants in the 2018 Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program: Social Practice

Meet our newest cohort of immigrant artists working with socially engaged art.

Through the support of The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts is pleased to announce the participants in the 2018 NYFA Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program: Social Practice. 

This program offers professional development resources for immigrant and first generation artists working in all forms of socially engaged art (including, but not limited to, public and community engagement and advocacy around issues of environment and climate change, immigration, race, gender, and social justice).

An outgrowth and expansion of NYFA’s Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program, this initiative provides selected participants with guidance through experienced mentors. With NYFA’s support, artists will have a platform for articulating current issues and concerns that are impacting our society, seeking ways to create catalysts for change through their artistic practice.

Our immigrant artist participants come from Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, India, Mexico, Nepal, Republic Democratic of Congo, Serbia, and Trinidad & Tobago.
