August was a month of new beginnings at ProyectArte. As Mara Bochardt’s time at ProyectArte drew to a close last month, Ana Slavin joined the organization as our new executive director.
Ana studied at The National Drama School (Escuela Nacional de Arte Dramático) and completed a postgraduate degree in Culture and Communications Management and Policy at the Latin American School of Social Sciences (FLACSO Argentina). Her main activity in recent years has been in the field of managing social and cultural programs. Ana has administered neighborhood cultural development programs both for the government and for non-profit organizations. She also ran programs for underprivileged citizens through Buenos Aires’ Cultural Institute Social Office (Gabinete Social del Instituto Cultural de la Provincia).
Ana isn’t the only new face at ProyectArte; our newest group of 18 young artists has just begun its classes as part of the 2011-2012 ProyectArte Scholarship Program.
This year’s instructors include Karina Peisajovich, who will teach classes dealing with conception and execution of artworks, who will lead a class on different expressive media; and Máximo Jacoby, who will teach art history.
