Starting and Funding Your Project Workshop
May 18, 2013 (9:00 AM – 4:00 PM) RSVP
Learn from the pros on the best ways to starting and funding your own project in areas you may have never before considered. The focus will be on developing and securing funding for creative projects that can serve the needs of community redevelopment areas. Faculty: Marty Pottenger and Henning Haupt.
Marty Pottenger is a widely known solo performance artist and director with an extensive repertoire of projects and awards, Marty Pottenger has found her "big reason." In fact, throughout her journey as a theater artist, she has encountered many big reasons. From the critically successful "What It's Like To Be a Man" to the Obie-award-winning "City Water Tunnel #3," Pottenger's work has explored issues ranging from racism to economics, the women's movement to the war in the Balkans. Intertwining different media and researching oral histories, Pottenger uses theater to encourage people to think about issues, ask questions and engage in dialogue with their communities.
Henning Haupt is a painter and an educator for architectural design. As Assistant Professor he is teaching architectural design studios and ‘Color Material Space’, a class on the relationship between color, space, painting and architecture at the School of Architecture, Florida Atlantic University. Prior to that Haupt’s studio was located in Berlin and he taught architectural design at the Technical University at Braunschweig. Both, his painting and teaching experience was facilitated by a praxis-based research project on the relationship between colors and space. The dissertation of that project was completed as Ph.D. in 2008. Earlier Haupt studied at Cranbrook Academy of Arts, Michigan (Architecture with Dan Hoffmann, Painting with Beverly Fishman) and graduated from the Technical University Darmstadt, Germany in 1993.
