Collaborative efforts such as the LA Art Girls, Association of Hysteric Curators, Building Bridges and the countless collectives I and my creative practice belong to, are centered around regular Art and Planning Meetings. The following images are of my mentor showing us how successful planning meetings can provide an empowering voice for all artists, audience members and how to invite the community to join Public Practice Planning meetings.
Suzanne Lacy’s planning meetings with us for MOCA’s WAC exhibition in 2007, Happenings for immigrant rights, Planning meetings for Art and activism in Mexico, New Orleans post Caterina ……. I’ve learned that planning and prepping for art is extremely important, sometimes even the funniest-pre-part of the process. Here are a few pix from epic memories of working with large groups of artists, activists and community builders. Thank you!
