Adam Horowitz


Adam is a self-declared “projectician”—a collaborator and instigator of sector-blurring, border-crossing projects rooted in storytelling, cultural exchange, and social change. As an undergraduate at Yale University, Adam directed an experimental theater ensemble, conducted interviews with visiting artists for the World Performance Project, and wrote an award-winning ethnography on performance and immigration in New Haven. As a performer, musician, and researcher of intercultural exchange, Adam has work and trained with ensembles in Poland, Peru, Chile, and Denmark, presenting original work in forests, churches, public plazas, and living rooms, as well as traditional theaters. As a Fulbright Scholar in Colombia, Adam wrote about performance and politics for Theater Magazine and created theater pieces with teens affected by violence. Adam has consulted on storytelling and community engagement strategies with organizations such as the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market and Ashoka, and is a founding team member of The Future Project – a new national education initiative to reinvigorate public high schools by partnering students with community members to build passion-inspired creative change projects. Adam lives in Brooklyn and can be found playing accordion on the roof. He is currently barn-raising the new United States Department of Arts and Culture.
