They’ve Got Next
Just yesterday, the HAF team sat down with Simone Eccleston to do an interview for They’ve Got Next. They’ve Got Next is a new online platform designed to highlight young professionals who are taking arts and culture to the next level. Through multimedia features and interviews, it seeks to acknowledge, promote and celebrate excellence, innovation and vision amongst young artistic and administrative professionals in the field; as well as build community both intra- and inter-generationally. We were honored to have been selected for the first round of interviews!
Check back soon to see the video interview!
stillspotting ( ) nyc
The Manhattan portion of this two-year multidisciplinary project concluded Sunday with a sold out presentation of To a Great City. The scope of what stillspotting ( ) nyc does is incredible, and I can’t wait to see what they organize in Queens in 2012. Until then, they have many ways for you to interact with them from creating your own stillspot to finding their impromptu happenings!
The Truth is I Am You
An exhibit that just closed on Governor’s Island, The Truth is I Am You was a beautiful collection of truths from individuals around the world. Watch the video by Hank Willis Thomas, in collaboration with Eric Gottesman, Natasha Logan, and Jennifer Samuel.
