Collective Artmaking for Social Change
Terry Jenoure—musician, writer, visual artist and educator—hosts a collaborative artmaking event. Ensembles and collectives are important formats through which artists create collaborations that advocate for social change. These trans-disciplinary artworks are developed through focused workshops, conversations, improvisations, and experimentation in an environment where new aesthetic territory may be discovered. From music, to visual art, to theater performance
and writing, Terry hopes her own experience with making art and her desire to experiment will inspire audience members to collaborate and create art.
Ms. Jenoure was born and raised in New York City into a Puerto Rican and Jamaican family. A violinist, vocalist and composer, she was a protégé of the Black Arts Movement’s free jazz pioneers. Her book Navigators: African American Musicians, Dancers, and Visual Artists in Academe is published by SUNY Press, and she completed her first novel in 2016. A self-taught visual artist, she currently sells her textile sculptures through the Smithsonian Museum Store (National Museum of African American History and Culture).
She holds Masters and Doctoral degrees in Education and a B.A. in Philosophy. She has been the Director of Augusta Savage Gallery at UMASS for the last 25 years.
