Digital technologies heighten our awareness of ongoing conflicts around the world. A main strategic focus for Storefront in 2017 is to investigate the ways in which art, architecture, and design participate in the articulation and resolution of local and global struggles affecting individuals and collectives around the world. Storefront announces a call for a one-year Program and Strategy Fellow who will develop and present a critical new project: Architecture Conflicts. This grant-funded position aims to reach candidates from underrepresented backgrounds and communities that have faced barriers to entry for leadership roles on major global projects. The fellow will work alongside Storefront's team in New York City. "This fellowship, jointly conceived of by Storefront and Preeti Sriratana of MN Architects, comes at a crucial point in our economic and social climate. At a time when national and global political trends threaten the stability of our cities and communities, how can architecture serve as a driver of change around the world? The Architecture Conflicts project, along with this fellowship, seeks to create understandings of (and opportunities for) places and people who have been absent from historical and contemporary structures of power."
