American Arts Incubator

Elaine was selected to go to Moscow, Russia partnering with Garage Museum of Contemporary Art to host the AAI workshop, production lab and art exhibition addressing the social challenge during the month long exchange to each country. The participants were introduced to various techniques like Human Centered Design and rapid prototyping, encouraging them to use interactivity as ways of creating empathy and inclusion.

Social Inclusion

Elaine Cheung is addressing disability inclusion, working with those with physical or sensory impairments that in some way hinder or distort their ability to function, interact, and move through an able-bodied world. She is engaging with disabled and able-bodied participants to use new media art practice as a way to cultivate awareness, initialize dialogue, and suggest actionable steps towards inclusion and accessibility in Russia.

Community Projects

Four teams of artists explored aspects of inclusion through design prototypes that envisioned what futuristic inclusive programs could look like in local Moscow communities. Each project focused on a different aspect of inclusion: raising awareness about inclusive museum practices, facilitating inventive communication within communities, developing new mobility opportunities and experiences for people with and without disabilities.
