Artist ELAINE GAN, Brooklyn, New York, will travel to Manila, Philippines, to research, locate and document various spatial forms, urban zones and gated communities that reflect uneven geographical development and growing disparities in distributions of capital/commonwealth. Gan is an artist working in the public domain to reconfigure urban spaces, social roles and popular images. Her research will focus on spatial forms, urbanization processes and human migrations/displacements that have shifted or developed as a result of specific sociopolitical events beginning with the 1986 People Power Revolution. She seeks to construct a visual constellation of built environments as spatial products linked to contemporary neoliberal and postcolonial occupations.

THE LOFT LITERARY CENTER, Minneapolis, Minnesota, received a two-year grant of $100,000 in support of the Mentor Series. This large, comprehensive and independent literary center serves over 600,000 writers and readers of all ages each year. Its mission is to foster a writing community, the artistic development of individual writers and an audience for literature. The Loft received support for the Mentor Program, initiated in 1979 as a vehicle for emerging Minnesota writers to work in small group settings with nationally recognized writers, and to be mentored by them in various ways ranging from review of their work to providing inspiration and examples for a writing life. Twelve emerging Minnesota-based writers (four in poetry, four in fiction, and four in creative non-fiction) are selected through a competitive process to work intensively with six nationally acclaimed writers (two in each genre). The program includes individual conferences, group sessions, craft seminars, manuscript conferences and public readings.
