Brandon Stuart is an interdisciplinary artist, technologist, and social entrepreneur. His creative approach to learning allows him to interconnect his knowledge of multiple fields with distinct disciplines. This process has marked his evolution into a multi-hyphenate capable of orchestrating projects that bring together artists from different styles and modalities.
Brandon helped establish the Collegiate Identity and Participation Model, a college-readiness initiative created to address the educational needs of underserved high school students, which solidified his passion for educating communities on the power of self-authorship. His empowering work with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) as an educational and ideational consultant contributed to the genesis of ICONICLASS.
In 2020, he was awarded grant funding in the amount of $20,000 to design and lead a creative voting rights project called “Float The Vote”. The project culminated with “Float The Vote: Tell Your Story”, a short documentary film highlighting the team’s efforts, becoming an official selection of the 2021 PopDoc Awards, the 2021 Detroit Black Film Festival, and the 2021 Better Cities Film Festival. As one of eleven Unstoppable Voters Projects supported by the Center for Artistic Activism (C4AA), this experience marked the start of his professional journey designing creative projects for social change.
A native and current resident of Detroit, Brandon holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Behavioral Biology and East Asian Studies from Johns Hopkins University and a Master of Liberal Arts degree for intellectual freedom from the University of Chicago.
