Propelled by an unflinching pursuit of creative emancipation, cultural wellness, and social justice, Ebony Noelle Golden, native of Houston, Texas, and currently residing in the Bronx, serves as principal engagement strategist at Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative and artistic director of Body Ecology Womanist Performance Project. As a strategist, Golden consults, co-creates, designs, implements, and evaluates impact-driven projects and initiatives that push for social transformation. As an artist-scholar, Golden stages site-specific rituals + live art productions that profoundly explore the complexities of freedom in the time of now. In 2016, she developed a seminar course, served as a lecturer of Womanist and Black Feminist performance art at The New School, and co-edited an anthology of experimental womanist writing published by Obsidian Journal of Literature and Arts. In 2017, Golden will serve as Artist-in-Residence at the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics and Activist-in-Residence at the University of Oklahoma.

The event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow. A photo ID is required to enter NYU buildings and 20 Cooper Square is a wheelchair accessible venue.
