AIRIE Asks: Dorian Emerson Munroe

Dorian Emerson Munroe is a first generation local Miami creative, born to Caribbean parents who migrated from Guyana, South America. A recent winner of the Oolite Documentary Block Contest Grant, Dorian now looks to immersively showcase the animals, people, and plants of the Everglades.

His grant winning film is about the young people of Liberty City and its infamous bike culture, showcased on its unofficial Martin Luther King Day holiday, where thousands flood the streets with their dirt bikes and four wheelers in a form of rebellion and community. However, due to a hate crime that occurred while protesting the redevelopment of their lower-income housing, this movement has garnered national attention.

AIRIE Asks is a new online initiative led by Helen Toomer, AIRIE’s Executive Director, in which she asks fellows of the residency program a series of questions related to their time spent within the Everglades, how it affected them and their practice and what they are working on now. For the third episode, AIRIE Asks Dorian Emerson Munroe to share his experience as an artist-in-residence this past March, which was cut short due to COVID-19 and what he plans to work on now and when he’s able to return to complete his residency in March 2021.
