AS220 staff chosen as Community Fellows at Brown U
AS220 is proud to announce that our Artistic Director, Shey Rivera, and our Founder, Umberto Crenca, have been chosen as Community Fellows by the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage at Brown University! Chosen for having “demonstrated innovative approaches to the public humanities”, AS220 represents two thirds of this year’s crop of Fellows, alongside Marta Martinez of Rhode Island Latino Arts.
According to the Center “Each fellow works on a public humanities project and becomes a resource for Public Humanities students. Fellows present their work to the students and faculty (of the Center and of the larger Department of American Studies) in a series of lunch seminars, open to the public; participate in activities sponsored by the Center; open their courses and projects to public humanities students; and supervise students in practicums.”.
We can’t wait to see what they’ll be working on! Full announcement here.
