Jan 25, 2024 

As 2024 begins, many of us are still reflecting on last year, what we learned, how we lived, and how to understand our place in a challenging world. I can surely say this is true for me! No matter where you are in your thinking and moving, I hope you find community and trusted people to share with during these times - it’s where all the possibilities live, between us.

For Lohar Projects, 2024 starts with a re-entry into non-profit leadership work at The Flaherty! The Flaherty has long been a space that champions new and experimental models of non-fiction filmmaking and curating - bringing filmmakers, artists, academics, curators, and researchers together for almost 70 years at the annual Flaherty Film Seminar. After working with them as a strategic consultant in 2023, I am thrilled to be joining The Flaherty as the Interim Executive Director through July 2024. I will be working with the team, board and partners to organize the 69th Flaherty Film Seminar in Thailand at the Thai Film Archive (June 27 - July 2, 2024)

Throughout the year, I will also continue advising and mentoring some incredible artists including Creative Capital Awardees and Kresge Foundation Artists in Detroit Fellows. I am also deeply honored to be returning to the Pocoapoco residency in Oaxaca, Mexico this summer for a third time (2019, 2021) to facilitate a week-long session on Making Meaning with their international cohort of artists in residence!

Finally, I want to send a special thanks to the new clients I worked with last fall - the Print Center New YorkNEW INC at the New Museum and Triangle Arts. The Print Center invited me to create a professional development series for their revisioned open call program, New Voices. I spent one-on-one  time with each artist and facilitated a group session around dreams and possibilities. At NEW INC, I developed and led a multi-week session on Strategic Planning for their new members and at Triangle Arts I worked with the leadership to write their organizational values and provide a working plan for sustainable growth. Much gratitude to all these creative people (Nova, Brian, Salome, Robin, Jenn) for their patience and for trusting me to develop new engagements, ideas and pathways to support their artists and our larger creative economy!

This year, I continue to welcome small scale possibilities throughout the year and look towards Fall 2024 or after for starting new long-term projects. As always, I welcome you to reach out to talk shop or just catch up! 

With warmth,
