The Skowhegan Alliance

The Skowhegan Alliance is a diverse group of recent alumni who generate off-campus programming. Drawing from open-call solicitations to alumni and faculty, and generally curated via group consensus, the projects have a democratic approach that aligns with Skowhegan’s inclusive, non-hierarchical campus culture, and create opportunities for unlikely encounters between artists of different generations, backgrounds, and practices. Many participating artists meet for the first time, others re-kindle friendships, still others reconnect with Skowhegan for the first time in decades. Most projects take place in New York and are free and open to the public.
