Meet the 13 Art of Change Visiting Fellows, creative visionaries whose work explores the connections between art and social change. Over the course of the year, each Fellow is pursuing a self-directed project that delves into issues at the heart of art, creativity, equity, and justice. Their projects range from exploring the role of art in challenging extremism, to literature’s capacity to help move hearts and minds on issues related climate change, to making the nonprofit arts system in the U.S. more reflective of our increasingly diverse population. Together, their work will advance the role of the arts in social change and contribute to thinking about these issues.
