Through collaborative, community-based work with youth and adults, and independent, studio-based practice, he explores the potential of spaces for public dialogue, community building, and social action. Hernandez is co-founder of the Revival Arts Collective, a network of citizen activists using arts and culture as a catalyst for community redevelopment in Chicago; and founder and director of the Urban Vacancy Research Initiative, which enlists artists and designers to creatively address the phenomena of abandoned, razed, and vacant urban properties.
Nicole Marroquin is a cultural worker, strategist, concerned parent and classroom teacher whose creative practice includes research, teaching, and strategic intervention. Marroquin collaborates with youth and teachers on art-based action research, and she exhibits art, presents research and writes.
