Statement

RJ Eldridge (b. 1984) is a Chicago-based writer, emergent multidisciplinary artist, curator, educator and thinker. He is the Associate Director of the Chicago Slam Works House Ensemble, and teaches creative and critical writing and photography with Young Chicago Authors, Chicago Slam Works, Chicago Danztheatre and the Storyographers digital storytelling organization. He made a national television debut last September in the NAACP Image-Award nominated series, Lexus Presents: Verses and Flow.

A graduate of the University of South Florida’s Master’s program in Africana Studies, with a focus on literature and theory, he has engaged widely on the role of the arts in the construction of identity, and seeks to expand the dimensions of thought on the intersections between performance, race, history, ontology and myth. He has instructed at the University of South Florida, Young Chicago Authors and the Noble Network Charter Schools in Chicago, and has gained a reputation for enhancing literacy through critical thinking. He lives in Chicago.
