Multigenerational Artists in Dialogue: A series dedicated to empowering LGBTQ and feminist artists, in dialogue with their communities.

Pioneers Go East Collective curated series at Judson Memorial Church features multidisciplinary artists who explore new genres and known performance and art-making modes to share their creative practices with other artists and their audiences. Each evening we witness different generations of artists dealing with actual, day-to-day, contemporary challenges to further discussion between artists, and to activate a network of exchange and inclusion with social and artistic intervention.

If you'd like to participate in our series - please email: with subject: 'I'd like to participate in Crossroads'. Please include a short description of your work and a video.
