Imagining America (IA) seeks to catalyze change on campuses and build partnerships among public scholars, artists, students, designers and cultural organizations who are addressing the most pressing issues of our time. We do this work through our annual conference, regional organizing institutes, collaborative research and action initiatives, student fellowship programs and online journal, PUBLIC.
IA is now stationed at the University of California, Davis for the next 5 years! Its national conference was held for the first time ever on the West Coast. TANA is now a partner with IA, and has assisted in the organizing of the conference. Our manager, Drucella Miranda, has sat on their steering committee since Spring. TANA was granted a slot to conduct an on-site workshop where 20 participants of the conference were able to view our gallery space and collaborate with one another to make posters! Drucella, co-founder Malaquias Montoya, and TANA participant Elyse Doyle-Martinez also participated in a panel for the final day of the conference.
