Minneapolis, MN, USA
Marcus Young (USA) 楊墨 makes participatory work at the intersection of art, spirit, and social movement, challenging current paradigms of who is an artist, how to live mindfully, and what is social action. He is founder of Don’t You Feel It Too?—an ongoing street dance practice of social healing and inner-life liberation. (DYFIT.org) From 2006 to 2015, he was City Artist in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he redefined the role of the artist as daily collaborator in government. He is currently Art for Social Change Program Director at HECUA (Higher Education Consortium for Urban Affairs); stage director for Ananya Dance Theatre; and artist in the creative collaborations program at the Weisman Art Museum. He is a recipient of awards from the McKnight, Bush, and Jerome Foundations.
