Art(ists) on the Verge (AOV), a new two-track fellowship and mentoring program for Minnesota-based, emerging artists working experimentally at the intersection and technology, with a focus on practices that are social, collaborative and/or participatory. AOV is supported by The Jerome Foundation with fiscal sponsor Forecast Public Art.
Public Address: A Blog
Public Address is a new blog jointly presented by Forecast and Northern Lights. Its goal is to be a forum for wide-ranging discussion of innovative artists, projects, and practices in the public realm.
Experimenting with Art in Public Places is a symposium free and open to the public, which will explore ways to support and present experimental art practices in public places, including in the virtual realm, outside the traditional white cubes and black boxes of cultural institutions. It brings together local and out-of-town artists, curators, producers, and presenters for a collaborative conversation about the public sphere as a site for works of art and art practices that spark the imagination but also challenge perceptions – artistic, cultural, social, political.
The UnConvention is a non-partisan collaboration of organizations and citizens, initiated by Northern Lights, who have come together to create a forum in which to promote the democratic and free exchange of ideas on important issues. It exists as a counterpoint to the highly scripted and predetermined nature of the contemporary presidential nomination process and convention.
