Fact Craft was a collaborative, cross-disciplinary
program series that examining the ways “facts”
are constructed, crafted, presented and disseminated. Each program invites a guest to facilitate
a group action that intervenes in, questions, or
subverts systems of ‘fact craft’ across disciplines. These actions address oppressive cultural
systems by generating alternatives and jamming
Fact Craft programming includes workshops,
dialogues, Second Sunday interventions, and
Study Hall hours. During Study Hall, interested
participants meet and collaborate on their own actions and have access
to related resources. The series culminated on November 18, 2017 with a celebratory public
event that includes presentations of participant
projects and features a conversation between artist and activists Noah Fischer and Coco Fusco.
Project Team: Sheetal Prajapati (program director) with Katie Gritilian and Rachel Haberstroh as lead programmers and design by Allyn Hughes. Rachel and Katie conceived of the original series concept.
