"ArtsEmerson, HowlRound, and Emerson College are proud to share the Ford Foundation’s announcement today, that P. Carl, PhD., is one of the 25 new Artists for Change Fellows. The fellowships will support visionary artists and cultural leaders in creating powerful works of art that help advance freedom, justice, and inclusion, and strengthen our democracy.
According to the Ford Foundation, “the artists and cultural leaders selected for Art of Change fellowships all have a demonstrated commitment to social justice, and reflect a powerful diversity of experiences and creative voices. Drawn from a wide range of artistic fields, the fellows span generations, backgrounds, geographies, and life experiences—and together tell a rich and varied American story.” Click here to read the full Ford Foundation press release.
“I am overwhelmed by this honor,” P. Carl shares, “to be included in a group of artists who have so heavily influenced my life and my own creativity. This is the kind of thing you dream about but don’t really expect. The Ford Foundation is a leader in insisting that art and social justice belong in the same sentence and to be recognized by them in this way is both a gift and a responsibility.”"
