The John Brown Lives! Fellowship at Craigardan supports humanists engaged in the performing and visual arts, creative writing, scholarship and activism, and whose work is guided by a compassionate sense of history and its contemporary reverberations. JBL! Fellows possess a commitment to expressions of freedom, equality and social justice, ideals for which the Abolitionist John Brown dedicated and sacrificed his life.
Devon Reid is the first JBL! Fellow to join us on campus this summer. Devon is a multimedia artist, curator and cultural mediator whose work focuses on the notion that all of life stems from an interconnected wholeness. “We are all but fragments from this whole and each fragment carries the knowledge of what it is to be fully interconnected; each work of art, each process is thus an archaeological exploration of the intangible world and how it manifests in material form.”
