ARTISTS IN CONTEXT is a flexible organizational framework designed to assemble artists and other creative thinkers across disciplines to conceptualize new ways of representing and acting upon the critical issues of our time.  The Prospectus is the main project of Artists in Context, and is a curated, multimedia collection of works through which artists collaborate with creative thinkers from other fields to propose innovative ways they and others might intervene in major debates on global, national and local/regional scales. More information on the project can be found on the current Prospectus site. Artists in Context is a project of The Arts Company.

Robbie McCauley

Robbie McCauley’s SUGAR premiered in Boston at ArtsEmerson in January 2012.  Robbie’s interest in health disparities reflected in the social, historical and global scope of diabetes underlies her collaboration with AIC, which set up several multi-session story circles for Robbie and other Boston-area diabetics and also put her in contact with medical and public health professionals who acted as advisors. Robbie has submitted two Prospectus contributions, both related to SUGAR: new poems, dialogues and journal entries as well as excerpts from work-in-progress versions of the script; and dining table placemats created in collaboration with photographer Marie Cieri and graphic designer Andrew Liebchen that can be downloaded for printing here.
