Members of the Transforma Team
Join members of the Transforma Team for an open house event to celebrate the release of the 96-page, color publication that documents Transforma’s five years of activity in New Orleans.
Transforma supported public and socially engaged creative practice through direct project support in the post-Katrina landscape, and also through broader resource development and knowledge transfer. Financial support was provided to New Orleans-based projects on large and small scales through two programs: the pilot projects and the Creative Recovery Mini-Grant program. In addition to monetary resources, Transforma made contributions by hosting a website (a digital forum) and through convenings (physical forums). The multiple structures of support allowed for a great diversity of individuals and projects to engage with the Transforma initiative, some on a one-time basis at a convening, some on multiple occasions through the website, and some on a daily basis through direct project support. The Transforma team includes Jessica Cusick, Sam Durant, Jess Garz, Rick Lowe, and Robert Ruello. Read more about their New Orleans projects at www.transformaprojects.org.
