PRICE: $650 with financial assistance available

DEADLINEApplications due on June 21, 2024 

Artichoke Dance Company Director, Lynn Neuman, created the Artichoke Ambassadors program with the goal of inspiring and equipping artists with skill sets to use their artistic practices as a method for enacting change, with a focus on the climate crisis and environmental degradation. 

“We started this program because people asked for it,” states Neuman. “I had gotten enough inquiries from other artists about how to go about the work that I’ve been engaged in for over a decade and I thought, there’s a need here to be filled. It’s inspiring for me that so many artists want to make the world a better place through their art, and we’ve created a network of support for it.” 

During the training, participants will engage with environmental justice principles, participate in embodied explorations of climate-related issues, and collaboratively design eco arts projects. Participants will leave with a plan for executing self-designed eco arts projects, a deeper understanding of environmental justice and how it plays out in real life, and a community of support with their Artichoke Ambassador peers. Manuel Lopez, a 2023 Artichoke Ambassador intensive participant shared, “Something I didn’t expect was to feel so equipped and encouraged to create change and organize people around climate.” 

The 2024 Artichoke Ambassadors eco arts summer intensive will feature an impressive list of guest speakers including climate activists, ecoartist, and scientists actively working in the field and a new cohort of artists collaboratively creating their own arts and activism projects.

The program cost is $650 and financial assistance is available. Those that require financial support should complete the short application by June 14, 2024. All applications are due June 21, 2024. The application and more information can be found at artichokedance.org/artichoke-ambassadors
