The community is invited to a cocktail reception honoring the Word 2017 Grantees, March 14, 7:30pm, at AJU.
The Word Grant, a project of American Jewish University’s Institute for Jewish Creativity, supports artists creating projects that explore Jewish ideas, themes, tradition, history, and identity. We believe in supporting a contemporary, vibrant, Jewish cultural landscape in Los Angeles.
The second annual cohort of grant recipients was selected by a panel of professionals of the local art arena. These eight multi-disciplinary artists approach identity, ethics and histories differently, yet they all share an interest in the functions, emergence and presence of the written word and the ways it resonates within Jewish culture. The grants are geared toward the creation and/or presentation of new work.
We are thrilled and honored to share these new projects with you! Spanning across disciplines, genres, and means of creative expression, these fascinating ventures will undoubtedly expand and enrich the boundaries of contemporary discourse and its future possibilities.
