About
Shoshanah Tarkow is a scholar, conceptual artist, theatre-geek turned self-taught techie, and digital-interventionist.  

Shoshanah is the creator, developer, and Chief Citizen Curator of the Digital Happening Project (a community-sourced, durational, artistic experience presented across social media).  People from around the world, between the ages of twenty-two and eighty-two, have participated in one of her Digital Happenings.  Most recently, Shoshanah presented the Digital Happening project at the 2018 biennial Performing the World conference in New York.  In a workshop (From Happenings to Hashtags: the performance of community in a digital world) participants worked collectively to design a digital happening for an international community of performance activists.  This two-year durational event “goes live” for 72 hours on the first of every month until the next Performing the World conference in 2020.

Shoshanah received her BFA in Theatre Studies (with a concentration in acting and dance) from Adelphi University, where she was the recipient of the Provost Arts Talent Scholarship.  She recently completed her MA in Performance Studies at New York University, where she was the recipient of the Emerging Scholars Award.
