Our Fellows

Arielle Brown Arielle Brown is a multidisciplinary cultural producer, social and civic practice theater artist, and dramaturg based in Philadelphia, PA. Brown’s work seeks solutions for how cultural institutions and arts initiatives can facilitate social justice and cultural equity through the championing of culturally specific performance. Emerging from her work and research around U.S. slavery, racial terror and justice, Arielle is committed to supporting and creating Black performance work that commands imaginative and material space for social transformation. Her project, Black Spatial Relics: A New Performance Residency around Slavery, Justice and Freedom, supports the development of performance works that address and incorporate the public history of slavery and contemporary issues of justice.

Cheyenne Concepcion Cheyenne Concepcion is an urbanist, artist, and designer based in San Francisco, CA. In an effort to move away from authoritative representations of space, her research experiments with the redrawing of the U.S.-Mexico borderlands by hybridizing methodologies of conceptual art, new media, and counter-cartography. Concepcion’s project, Borderlands Archive, is a virtual architectural design for a new container for knowledge and narratives about the borderlands. Stepping away from how monuments and maps have historically defined them, she seeks to highlight veritable cultural and material connections by archiving contributed objects from the borderlands.
