2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Kathryn will expand on her 2015 Art and Change Grant project, The Healing Blanket – a collection of small hand-woven pieces created by family members, each representing a homicide that took place in Philadelphia in 2015. In honor of the 280 people killed by gun violence, Kathryn plans to hold a memorial and procession at the BKG Funeral Home in North Philadelphia. Here, she will assemble The Healing Blanket pieces along with photos of those killed and then drape it over a casket for viewing. This memorial will be a public outcry against gun violence and will give people an opportunity to express their grief as well as call for peace and healing in our communities. It will also be a plea to put guns down and change gun control legislation.

DE-CODED: Art + Tech for Social Change

Leeway Foundation hosts the May Live Culture event at PhillyCAM! Live Culture is an open house and live TV production that happens on the first Friday of every month, curated by different arts and culture organizations. Since it’s Philly Tech Week, we’re focusing on local artists who utilize new media and technology to build alternate landscapes at the intersections of art and social change. Featuring presentations and conversations with poet and digital artist Andrea Walls (ACG ’14) and independent filmmaker M. Asli Dukan (ACG ’16, ’14, LTA ’16), we'll explore and answer questions like, How has technology enabled you to express an idea that couldn't have been conveyed otherwise? What conversations aren't happening in the space of creative technology?
