Working Open Fellow, Monica Valenzuela from Staten Island Arts (SIA) created an abstract film featuring archival footage layered on top of video documentation from current programs. Her short film speaks to the complicated dynamics of history and place in the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, SIA’s new home. Her post elaborates on their experiments with arts programming and flexible, sliding-scale ticketing mechanisms. Watch the video and read her post here.
In this podcast, Jeffrey Lependorf and Monica Valenzuela explore the unique challenges facing arts development organizations, especially as they navigate the responsibility of serving other organizations and constituents while making their own work visible.
EmcArts is committing to a “working open” approach and sharing learning about innovation projects in real-time. Last week, we held our first Community Call with a group of arts leaders interested in exploring these ideas together.
