Each year, our artist development program, Create Change, supports 15 to 20 artists developing their socially engaged creative practice through our Fellowship, Residency, and Commissions program. In 2012, we began asking our Create Change artists to pair up for Creative Conversations: open-ended creative exchanges to be published on our blog. Read on to meet our Create Change alumni.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Sydnie L. Mosley is a Harlem-based dancer, choreographer and educator. As an artist-activist, she is interested in creative work that is both artistically sound and socially aware actively engaging audiences in the artistic process and in performance. She earned her MFA in Dance with an emphasis on Choreography from the University of Iowa, and is also an alumna of Barnard College at Columbia University, where she earned her BA in Dance and Africana Studies.
Lisa Sikorski is an artist who makes socially engaged, intimately produced projects. She considers her work as cultural provocations and has recently been investigating domestic tasks and spaces, looking at them as a site of conflict in feminine identity as well as trying to create a dialog about the way we value these tasks and spaces. She holds a BFA from Oregon College of Art and Craft and an MFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
