This March 31st @1pm, meet Camden-based designer/design instructor Terina Nicole Hill for a behind the scenes look at the spaces she works in most often: her studio and the classroom.
Hosted monthly on ZOOM, South Jersey Creatives at the Table sessions allow virtual guests to connect with fellow South Jersey artists, creatives, and cultural community members while they ‘visit’ artist’s studios, participate in art slams and critique sessions, or engage in cultural discussions. Each session is as unique as the featured artist!
Attendees also learn a little about how the South Jersey Cultural Asset Mapping Project (SJ CAMP) is helping artists throughout South Jersey connect with information, resources and each other.
The March and April South Jersey Creatives at the Table events are a collaboration between SJCA and Cooper’s Ferry Partnership/Connect the Lots Camden, in an effort to highlight Camden artists and performers.
Cooper’s Ferry Partnership (CFP) was founded in 1984 as a private, non-profit corporation dedicated to planning and implementing high-quality urban redevelopment projects to revitalize the City of Camden. Cooper’s Ferry currently powers two initiatives designed to bring vibrancy to Camden neighborhoods and use public art to address important civic issues.
- Connect the Lots (CTL) is a community-driven initiative to activate Camden, New Jersey’s parks and underutilized spaces through the implementation of artistic, cultural, and recreational projects and activities. The goals of the initiative are to engage Camden residents in neighborhood transformation, create safe nodes of activity, and bring vibrancy to Camden’s corridors and public spaces.
- A New View (ANV) is a series of temporary art installations at six sites across the city that invite the community to imagine a more beautiful, innovative, and healthier future by responding creatively to Camden’s history as a place for illegal dumping.
CTL and ANV are collaborative efforts between Cooper’s Ferry Partnership, the City of Camden, and Rutgers University Camden.
CFP is excited by the possibility for these initiatives to highlight and strengthen Camden’s artist community. Our partnership with the South Jersey Cultural Alliance will provide an up-close look at some of the amazing work being created by individuals reared and working in the City of Camden.
