ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Dustin Harewood was born and grew up in New York City in the 1980's and became a junior member of the Brooklyn Museum at 7 years old. His family later moved back to Barbados where he attended high school.
He later moved back to the U.S where he attended North Carolina Central University (BA) and then the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (MFA).
Dustin has been twice recognized with a Distinguished Faculty Award from Florida State College at Jacksonville. In 2017 the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville awarded him the prize of ‘Arts Educator of the Year.’
Marriage and children with a Japanese woman seriously affected Dustin’s studio practice. The content of his work and life is reflected in his projects between three specific locations- Jacksonville Florida, Christ Church Barbados and Aomori Japan.
As an agency, we are committed to dismantling barriers and providing meaningful resources and training for creative and cultural professionals.
Erie Arts & Culture believes that creative and cultural professionals can play a central role in developing vibrant and healthy communities and neighborhoods when they are provided with access to Professional development, Resources, and Opportunities (PRO).
