My name is Danielle Jackson. For the last fifteen years I've worked at the intersection of art, media, and social justice initiatives.
I'm the co-founder and former co-director of the Bronx Documentary Center, an internationally-recognized, community-based nonprofit gallery and educational space. Previously, I managed exhibitions in more than a dozen countries for the legendary Magnum Photos.
I write about culture and social dynamics and I advise organizations, businesses, and artists globally on community engagement and audience development strategies
Through all my endeavors, my goal is to help others see the world more expansively.
On Tuesday, 2/9, I will join academics and activists in "Strategies for Change", a panel discussing social change at Columbia University.
* I moderated the launch of Arts in a Changing America, a 5-year nationwide initiative examining art and demographic change.
* This fall I will be taught for Stanford in New York, a new program for undergraduates focused on the arts and urban studies. I will join Arthur Cohen, Scott Francisco, and Julie Orringer as the inaugural faculty.
Dubbed its neighbors as "our museum", the Bronx Documentary Center (The BDC) is an internationally-recognized gallery, screening room and educational space dedicated to documentary film and photojournalism.
I work with businesses, organizations, and artists to develop thoughtful community engagement and audience development strategies. I believe we can create a more inclusive and equitable world through community-engaged work.
I'm working on a number of essays on urbanism, visual culture, and social dynamics.
