Community Affiliate and Artist

Mindy Stricke is a photographer and participatory artist whose collaborative practice blends photography, documentary audio, writing, collage, sculpture, and performance. She uses metaphors of geography and place to map shared human emotions and life passages, about topics such as new motherhood, childhood play, grief, and sexuality. Working with the public and their true stories, she transforms the familiar into something new, helping to connect people to themselves and others in the process. Mindy’s work has been awarded grants and fellowships from the Folger Shakespeare Library, the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts among others. Her photographs and installations have been exhibited throughout North America, and featured in CBC Arts, The New York Times, Time, Newsweek, Japan’s Voce Magazine, Toronto Star, Modern Loss, What’s Your Grief, and the Smithsonian Institute Photography Initiative’s book and exhibit, Click! Photography Changes Everything.
