Creative Fellowship 2021: Culminating Reflections and Conversation
During the 2020/21 season, we were lucky to have Johnnie Cruise Mercer and Jaime Sunwoo in residence with the company as Creative Fellows .
The Creative Fellowship launched in 2019 and invites early career multidisciplinary artists with a commitment to social justice to engage with PCC's archival body of work and methodologies; and receive mentorship and guidance on their career and creative goals. Each Creative Fellow received support to create a new work inspired by the PCC archive.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, this year's Fellowship took place almost entirely remotely, until the last few weeks in June 2021, when it became safer to gather in person again. At the end of the Fellowship, Artistic Director Ping Chong, Managing Director Jane Jung, and Creative Fellows Jaime Sunwoo and Johnnie Cruise Mercer met at at the Ping Chong and Company office, to hear culminating reflections from Jaime and Johnnie, and to have a conversation about their time with the company.
