What drew you to the MA in Arts Politics?

The professors, courses, the size and global reach of the cohort, the length, its placement within Tisch, etc. 

How do you describe or identify your practice/ work?

I am a writer and arts administrator. 

How did your experience in the program shape your work? 

Two courses really shaped the program for me: the winter course in Puerto Rico with Dr. Marta Moreno Vega and the Spring Saturday course with Alfredo Jaar. They were hands on, and filled with peer critique and interdisciplinary engagement.

What are you doing now?

Working to reclaim the home of Langston Hughes as a space for contemporary Black literature.
