Join us for the final installations, performances, and presentations of our third year of EMERGENYC, the Hemispheric New York Emerging Performers Program. This is the second year of Activist Performance ("artivism") series. As a part of the Institute's Hemispheric New York initiative, the Emerging Performers Program aims to support the development of New York-based artists ages 18 to 28 whose work functions as a vehicle for political expression and social change, and who examine the broad range of identities, practices and histories of the Americas (the western hemisphere, thus "hemispheric") through genres such as spoken word, street performance, political cabaret, performance art, video performance, movement, and others.

2010 ARTISTS: Aimée Lutkin, Ariel Federow (Ariel Speedwagon), Chelsea Johnson-Long, Clark Stoeckley (Clark Clark), Claudia Sofia Garriga Lopez, Giovanni Varga, Heather Morowitz, Helaine Gawlica, Jonathan McCrory, Julián Mesri, Kira Neel, Laura Botero Camacho, Pablo Varona Borges, Ricardo Gamboa, Tiffany Ferguson.
