Program Description

DAR is an opportunity for 5 Deaf artists to come together in an ASL-centric environment to create, communicate & exchange ideas. DAR was developed with the goal of contributing to a local and national network of Deaf culture-creators. The program's goal is to create Deaf artistic and organizational networks that support substantial development of Deaf arts as a distinct cultural area within the larger context of American culture. ASL interpretation is provided for arrival day and other public events/activities with the hearing community such as the Capstone event at the end of the month. DAR coordinator Cynthia Weitzel, a Deaf visual artist that maintains a year-round studio space at the Anderson Center, works with Center staff in the development and execution of the program while ensuring full accessibility. She is the liaison between artists, program partners and the Center prior to and during residencies and provides on-going artistic/community support to the cohort.
