Artist as Citizen
EAP brings together dynamic panelists to discuss artistic citizenship and issues of engagement with place.
For this program, among other inquiries, we ask:
* To what degree have artists become agents of community revitalization and place-making?
* How are cluster initiatives in the development of city spaces facilitating the role of artistic citizenship and providing opportunities for partnership with the public?
* In what ways are cities, curators, and organizations utilizing elements of the New Deal/ WPA legacy to create a new model for artists as citizens?
