Fine Arts, 110
CASE & Project Row Houses host the culminating Performance Lectures for the Inaugural Fellows Carrie Schneider and Carol Zou. Fellows have synthesized their research into a multi-media lecture performance that examines art's potential to interrogate, complicate, and reimagine social systems. Click for more details.
Deadline November 21
PRH and CASE are seeking two new Fellows – one local to Houston and one non-local individual - already engaged in social practice and community-engaged art whose practice would benefit from a mentorship and year-long engagement with Project Row Houses and UH’s Center for Art & Social Engagement. The fellowship program brings artists, cultural practitioners, urban planners, educators, and policy makers to engage with the PRH process and the greater Houston community. Through the program, it is our hope to educate and empower the next generation of leaders in socially engaged art and activism, disseminate a known successful practice, and seed discourse across the nation.
