Announcing our 2016 Makers Muse Awardees
Our collaborative treasure hunt leads us around the world, to Syria, Argentina, Mexico, and back to the United States. We found a social justice punk band, a bold political muralist, linguists for the environmental apocalypse, a Syrian master musician and doctor, a techno folk telepathic painter, a barrio pen wizard, and last but not least a pop-culture photographic/performance satirist.
As if all of this weren’t exciting enough, each of these Makers Muse Awardees has been invited to participate in our Boomerang experiment. What’s Boomerang you ask? Boomerang is our latest program which combines artists and Flow Funds in an adventure that breaks open traditional forms of philanthropy.
Get inspired by this group of seven right here on our Nexus space this autumn as they each share personal stories about their work and process.
