Sitting in the Questions

New Publication: Institute of Other Significant Pursuits: Sitting in the Questions 

As part of our committment to sharing knowledge about our practice as widely and freely as possible and supporting and developing the many emerging leaders in our growing community, we launched a new program last summer, the Institute of Other Significant Pursuits, a three day long conversation on what it means to be a community artist and educator beyond the walls of our studio here on Westminster Street. 

Ten of our former artist mentors, all strongly influenced by their experience as artist mentors at New Urban Arts, were invited back to “sit in the questions” of each of their current pursuits, whether as artists, teachers, students, mentors, activists, mothers and more.


limited edition artist publication is now available documenting this convening for others who are also in the messy pursuit of making, mentoring, nurturing creativity and “inhabiting the questions.” It includes a series of postcards and handprinted envelope/poster in addition to a paper back book with saddle stitch binding and full-color interior ink. Contact Program Director Sarah Meyer atsarah@newurbanarts.org if you are interested in purchasing this limited edition publication. 

Published through Lulu Press, Inc, the 80-page paperback book is also available as an on-demand, full-color print edition. It can be purchased at cost value for $21.50 by visiting our online store. 

The paperback book can be downloaded at no cost by visiting www.newurbanarts.org here.
