Tisch Design Community Week: Make America Project
You are invited to a special event on Friday, October 19th from 12:30 - 2pm. In celebration of the Tisch School of the Arts Week of Community, come hear about the Make America Project.
MAP was founded by two Design Department alumni - Ilana Breitman '16 and Lily Prentice '17, along with Maridee Slater. Ilana and Lily are excited to come in to speak with us about their recent cross-country trip and their future plans.
Make America Project (MAP) is a mobile artist residency program focused on crafting, storytelling, and fostering discourse around "Make America ________." During their residencies, MAP Makers join MAP facilitators in a Studio Van and undertake a creative road trip, working on a homeland inspired project of any artistic medium. Residents strengthen their creative practices as they develop a daily making habit on the road, while gaining inspiration, exploring, and learning from the landscapes that they travel through. Our goal is to amplify the voices of Artists and Makers in America Right Now, to explore their local creative traditions and the regional connection to the craft, and provide an interactive platform for artists to create. At the heart of MAP lies the question “What Makes America?” MAP takes this question literally, and sets out to find anyone and everyone Making in America.
