Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program: Social Practice, an outgrowth and expansion of NYFA’s Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program, is a professional development program for immigrant and 1st-generation artists working in all forms of socially engaged art that includes, but is not limited to, public and community engagement and advocacy around issues of environment and climate change, immigration, race, gender, and social justice.
Our mentors work directly with a community through their artistic practice and some with the organization they represent. Between them, they comprise many of the core areas from advocacy, activism, environmental and climate concerns, issues of race and gender, community, and public engagement.
