Creative Counterpoints

Creative Counterpoints is an annual program that I founded in 2016 at MassArt. Each CC program explores converging narratives of creativity and difference by artists, writers, educators, and creative thinkers.

Creative Counterpoints 2021: Uprooted/Translated feature a conversation between two prominent women creatives, who employ their talent to tell contemporary postcolonial narratives of border-crossings, voluntary and forced uprooting and transplanting: Artist Scherezade Garcia and writer Valeria Luiselli.  Their work bears witness to the agency and transformation that are possible through creative acts of cultural translation.
