Encounters / Encuentros


Learn more about Dignicraft and their work at the McColl Center.

PBS Digital Studio's The Art Assignment visits artist collective Dignicraft during their residency at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Omar Foglio, José Luis Figueroa, and Paola Rodriguez give us the assignment to facilitate an Encounter / Encuentro.


1. Think of two people who you know who have similar interests but don't know each other
2. Facilitate a collaboration by introducing them and suggesting they do something together
3. Document the experience
4. Upload to your social media platform of choice using #theartassignment
5. Fame and glory (your work might be featured in a future episode)

The business end of Twin. In charge of landing interesting new projects, making clients happy, and coffee. A maker of beautiful music and master of oral sound effects. A secret Jim Henson nerd. Will always find ways of working smarter. Will never participate in karaoke.
