From Our Young Innovators
“I really enjoyed the YI program: its flexibility, the chance to connect with other emerging artists, and to peek behind the curtain of Nightwood. The workshop sessions were very interesting and informative.
Organizing Fempocalypse was a really good challenge in terms of learning to work as a group. I was really proud of the results and the stressful moments all felt very worth it in the end. I learned that programming diverse artists is fulfilling not because it’s the ‘right’ (or trendy) thing to do, but because it produces the funniest, most universal, most moving experience for the audience.
I also really appreciated the season’s pass to Nightwood! And the chance to be in the office where art that I admire gets produced. It has a very positive effect to feel seen by those further down the road than oneself.”
