Community Partnership Projects

Digital Media Lab Projects

Dr. Yeong Ran Kim, Sarah Lawrence College’s Digital Media Fellow, has been working closely with individuals at Yonkers Arts, the Hudson River Museum, and Center Lane, a LGBTQ+ youth center, to help tell their stories through digital media.

As part of her Media Lab course, Kim is also running a four-part digital media workshop for youth from Yonkers, Bronxville, and Mount Vernon public schools.

Justice Fellowship

Sarah Lawrence College, Bronxville School District, Mt. Vernon City School District, and Yonkers Public Schools offered a fellowship and speaker series for 20 students for rising 11th and 12th grade students and all students at Sarah Lawrence College (5 from each academic institution) in Fall 2020-Spring 2021. Selected students made a commitment to explore together this year’s theme of Justice and Education.

Public Humanities Projects

Dr. Emily Bloom, a Sarah Lawrence College Public Humanities Fellow and faculty member, is collaborating with the Wartburg Adult Care Community in Mount Vernon, New York, to connect undergraduates and seniors in a series of conversations about objects, memories, and the things that matter to us all.​

Dr. Kishauna Soljour, a Sarah Lawrence College Public Humanities Fellow and faculty member, created the African American Oral History project that sought to tell and archive stories from the community. In the fall 2021 semester, Soljour, in partnership with the Yonkers Public Library, curated Rooted: A Community Archive Project. Featuring the work of artists Evan Bishop, Katori Walker, Haifa Bint-Kadi, and Sola Olosunde, the exhibit consists of multiple works in a range of media organized around themes of collaboration and storytelling.
