About the Project

For Affirmative Actions: Artists At Work, Creative Time invited visual and performing artists to participate in summer-long, on-site residencies at the Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage. Many artists created collaborative art works with targeted members of diverse communities, opening all phases of the creative process to a wide range of participants and audiences.


Utilizing the Anchorage’s unique architecture of vaulted chambers, artists set up studios; held workshops and performances; and hosted educational programs. The range of artists and their processes offered visitors options such as watching skateboarders execute daring stunts in a half-pipe or a tutorial in how to make herbal remedies.
