PD Welcomes Simone and Max to the Steering Committee

Simone Doing and Max Puchalsky are artists, organizers, and educators who are involved a range of projects that reflect their interest in new media, and engagement with local community issues. Together they are Co-Founders of Midwest Story Lab, a multimedia studio, and several community-based art projects including Justified Art!, CSArt Madison (Community Supported Art), and OFF THE WALL. They currently work as Lead Curators at Arts + Literature Laboratory, a community arts nonprofit, and as project managers for Captured: Narratives of Dane County’s Incarcerated Youth in collaboration with GSAFE (Gay Straight Alliance for Safe Schools). The pair have worked on national, state, and municipal campaigns, most recently as Campaign Managers for Ali Muldrow’s Madison School Board race. In fall 2017, they will begin earning their MFA in Digital Media from UW-Madison on a Graduate Fellowship.  Progressive Dane welcomes them both to the Steering Committee.
