Join us to welcome the 2019 Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts- Project Row Houses Fellows Sarah Raphael Garcia and Libby Bland. The two Fellows will share prior work and provide guiding questions and ideas about their upcoming Fellowship year. The lectures will be held in UH School of Art, Room 110, next to the Blaffer Museum courtyard entrance.

Libby Bland brings a background in oral history and arts-based community design together with her research on the history of self-planned Black communities throughout the rural South. She previously worked with the Community Futures Lab in Philadelphia, and her research work investigates the narratives that Black people tell (and omit) about our experiences.

Sarah Rafael García is a writer, traveler and arts educator with an M.F.A. in creative writing with an emphasis in fiction and cognate in media studies. She founded Barrio Writers, LibroMobile and Crear Studios, and published the multi-media project titled “SanTana’s Fairy Tales.”

The KGMCA-PRH Fellowship invites artists and cultural practitioners to the Third Ward to work alongside urban planners, educators and policy makers, as well as engage in creative collaborations that involve the Third Ward community and address issues important to them.
