Director, Youth Programs
Brittney Boyd Bullock born and raised in Memphis Tennessee has worked as Project Manager at the Urban Art Commission managing the city’s largest public art archive and as the Partnerships and Community Engagement Manager for Crosstown Concourse & Crosstown Arts overseeing a variety of collaborative creative programs and exhibitions. She now holds the position of Youth Program Manager for the Memphis Music Initiative helping to build sustainable relationships with Memphis' youth while implementing youth-led and youth-driven programs. Her passion for cultivating trust and lasting relationships has helped to naturally create opportunities for collaboration with various communities, organizations, and artists that invite participation from a broad range of backgrounds and expertise.
As a former fellow and now mentor of the ArtUp Fellowship, her interests in community engagement and social change has led her to an artistic practice that embraces the idea of redefining why to create, how to create, and for what purpose. In 2017, the Kresge Foundation awarded Bullock and community partner to implement a creative entrepreneurship project by using art as the vehicle for civic practice and social enterprise. As a freelance artist, she is most interested in art that questions and analyzes identity, culture, and the notions of power and ownership.
