En Foco’s Media Arts Work in Progress (WIP) Fund is a grant to support New York City artists of color who engage with digital media technologies in their art-making processes. In collaboration with BronxNet, these $2,000 awards will focus on applicants needing support for the completion of a quality work in progress, as determined by a panel of professionals such as multidisciplinary artist Arantxa Araujo. Araujo will join En Foco’s Director of Operations Kim Vaquedano-Rose and moderator/consultant Charlie Vazquez for a behind-the-scenes look at the submissions’ evaluation process, which will provide applicants with insights for success.

Arantxa Araujo is a Mexican multidisciplinary artist with a background in neuroscience. Her work is feminist and rooted in bio-behavioral research. Explorations of gender constructions, performativity and identity, and the politics of migration are seen and experienced in her installations, which include video, sound, photography, mapping, light, and performance. Her work has been shown at Brooklyn Museum, the Radical Women Latin American Art Exhibit, Chashama Space to Present, Grace Exhibition Space, Glasshouse Gallery, Queens Museum, and throughout the world.

Charlie Vazquez is an author and art consultant specializing in copywriting and grant writing. He has studied story craft for over twenty years and has designed, facilitated, and funded arts and wellness programs for the NYC Department of Health, the New York Public Library, the Bronx Council on the Arts, and PEN America, serving low-income communities, undocumented immigrants, LGBTQI youth-of-color, and senior citizens.
