Announcing Inaugural GENERATION NYZ Creative Fellows
Two early career artists to be in residence with Ping Chong + Company
We are thrilled to announce that Irisdelia Garcia and Kenya Bullock have been selected as the inaugural Generation NYZ Creative Fellows and will be in residence with the company from September 2019 – February 2020.
During this time, they will pursue creative projects, participate in a training and work/learning program, and work closely with the Ping Chong + Company artistic and administrative community to build skills in producing devised work, creating community-engaged theater and working in arts-in-education.
The Generation NYZ fellowship was launched to address inequities in support for generative artists of color who are interested in an entrepreneurial approach to self-producing and making work. The fellowship aims to create opportunities for artists of color from traditionally underrepresented communities and to expand PCC’s commitment to equity, inclusion, and diversity work. This program is made possible through the support of the New York State Council on the Arts Regional Economic Development Council Initiative.
