BFAMFAPhD (Est. 2012)


BFAMFAPhD is a collective that formed in 2012 to make art, reports, and teaching tools to advocate for cultural equity in the United States. The work of the collective is to bring people together to analyze and reimagine relationships of power in the arts. Among the group’s core members are Susan Jahoda, Agnes Szanyi, Vicky Virgin, and Caroline Woolard.

The collective will offer a series of Three Facilitated Workshops (March-April 2022), unfolding in three stages. The first two workshops use Intergroup Dialogue—a deep listening practice that aims to highlight similarities and foster understanding among different groups. The discussions in these workshops focus on the impact of food and housing precarity on the well-being of students at Kingsborough Community College. These two workshops are closed to the public and require participants to preregister. Each closed workshop is composed of twenty people: the first workshop will include ten administrators/staff members and ten faculty members; and the second workshop will be of five administrators/staff members, five faculty members, and ten students. The third workshop will be a public event on Zoom and will create a dialogue with other projects included in the UnHomeless NYC exhibition.
