Job Title: 
The Center for Artistic Activism
Country or Region: 

Steve Lambert’s father, a former Franciscan monk, and mother, an ex-Dominican nun, imbued the values of dedication, study, poverty, and service to others – qualities which prepared him for life as an artist.

He co-founded and directs the Center for Artistic Activism with Dr. Stephen Duncombe and trains grassroots activists in using creativity in their tactics and strategy. Lambert was a Senior Fellow at New York’s Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology from 2006-2010, developed artist professional development workshops for Creative Capital Foundation, and is an assistant Professor of New Media at SUNY Purchase. Steve is a perpetual autodidact with (if it matters) advanced degrees from a reputable art school and well-respected state university. He dropped out of high school in 1993.

Passionate about comedy, Steve has trained at the Upright Citizen's Brigade, collaborated with comedians and comedy writers, worked with the Yes Men, and taught a class at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston called "Truth in Comedy: Using Humor to Talk About Difficult Things."

He lives in Beacon, New York.
