Amy Tuttle loves the magical ways that collaborative art-making can build connections between people. She’s motivated by the empathy that forms when folks are given space to listen, share, and co-create. Tuttle considers her practice a simple+deep experiment in “putting things together” (art-making) to tell stories, transfer meaning, build bridges of communication, engage across differences, and explore building the world together. Tuttle believes the arts can support individuals and communities in personal growth, community-building, and cultural transformation.
Tuttle has led local and international efforts in the field of Community Arts for over 10 years. With an MA in “Community Arts: Arts in Transformation,” her experiences range from leading professional training around the world to offering creative arts workshops locally. She serves as Director of Programming for Wordplay Cincy, a local arts-based organization where “stories write the future.”
During this residency, Tuttle’s offerings will explore these themes: Art as Social Commentary, Building the Future through Expression, and Healing/Building Connected Community. Visitors during this residency will experiment with collaborative art-making through dance/movement, visual arts, storytelling experiences, and mindfulness practices.
