UCSC Art Department’s Professor Dee Hilbert-Jones has been awarded the Creative Capital Award for new documentary Run With Me.
From the Creative Capital Website,
“We are pleased to announce the selection of 50 projects by 58 individual artists that have received 2019 Creative Capital Awards. The artists represent some of the most exciting work being conducted in all disciplines from digital technology and performing arts to documentary film and visual practice. Each project will receive up to $50,000 in project funding, and a long-term commitment of advisory and career development support accounting for an additional $50,000 in career development services, for a total value of $100,000.
“This year’s 50 projects by 58 individual artists were drawn from a pool of more than 5,200 applications. The projects which earned 2019 Creative Capital Awards are based in 15 different states and territories, from New York to California, Puerto Rico to Washington. Over 60 percent of the artists identify as women, and 77 percent as people of color. They span a range of genres, including literature, performance, the visual arts, moving image, technology, and socially engaged art, but what they all share in common is a conviction in the power of art and the importance of pushing boundaries.”
