These recent projects were made possible by the following grants

Amarte Foundation to produce a series of Tapestries that will be exhibited at the Huygens Institute for Dutch History indefinitely

Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst, for an exhibition & project produced by TAAK about the Future of Justice - part of the project Transversal Scepters.

Citizen Diplomacy Action Fund Grant for a Media Literacy Project on the Future of Justice- Our original project was a production of a theater play in New York City and Portugal about the history, present and future of the freedom of the press. The whole project had to go online because of COVID, so we-media literacy scholar, Belinha de Abreu and I, created the World Media Literacy Foum, a media literacy conference instead and are producing a series of short films based upon the content of the conference. You are welcome to attend & apply to the open call for films. A play and theater adaptation about the history, present and future of the freedom of the press may be forthcoming.
