2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Amber will create a solo performance that unearths the Indigenous woman’s voice through the Cherokee perspective and responds to current curatorial gaps in male-centered Native American art and history exhibits. Amber will complete dramaturgical research and cultural immersion in Cherokee, NC and perform the one-woman show as an exhibit performance at the Penn Museum on Columbus Day and as a theatrical piece for the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. She will also offer it as a teaching device for the curriculum of Independence Charter School.
