ABOUT ME:
My name is Ariel Gentalen and I am a trans* arts laborer, writer, educator and organizer. I was born and raised in Orange County, California but spent the last six years developing my facilitation practice by working at the Art Institute of Chicago, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Third Coast International Audio Festival, Chicago Artists Coalition, and the Hyde Park Art Center. 

THIS "THING": 
Curating About Everything's purpose is to engage subscribers with a bi-weekly digital zine that includes extended writing, photos of dogs + plants, sneak previews of developing art projects, and curated recommendations for art, books, movies, fashion, tv, podcasts, and articles to send to your bff & say "this made me think of you." 

THE NITTY GRITTY:
In supporting me, you are directly contributing to paying my healthcare + phone bills as an unemployed/"freelancing" trans* person. I am currently working on a book project, have a writing residency from Sep-Oct and will be cultivating new queer networks in the arts alongside professionalizing my teaching practice. I will also be learning to surf as an exploration into healing ongoing body dysphoria, as the ocean knows no gender.

OR HIRE ME FOR THINGS LIKE:
- Craft Syllabi for you or your Organization/Foundation around Trans Inclusivity, Queer Artists, Queer Curating, Queer Essential Reading, Trans Artists, Trans Resources, Queer Audio, etc. - just ask, it's Curating About Everything and my practice is #research. 
- Lectures or Workshops 
- Review/Workshop/Edit Artist Statements/Residency or Fellowship Applications 
- 1-on-1 Video chat Studio Visits for Artists/Makers/Facilitators 
- Transcribe Your Audio (Yes, I still do this too)

Reach out to [email protected] to pitch the project and we can discuss rates. Sliding scale for LGBTQ+ orgs and individuals on all services but transcription.  

If you're not interested in a monthly subscription, but want to send one-time support,
donations are also accepted in the following ways:

If you do send a one time support, please include an address so I can send a hand written thank you. 

Many endless thanks for your support and encouragement.
With much gratitude, A. xoxo.
