IDEAS, CULTURE & COMMUNITY

WELCOME

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.

 

RECENT NEWS

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.
