6 artist candidates are chosen yearly as AnkhLave Garden Fellows, where artists have access to a community garden to use as an alternative studio space and conduct art demonstrations, talks, workshops, panels, and exhibitions for the public. We see environmental settings as an idyllic space for creatives wanting to find sensory inspiration beyond white walls. We initiated the 2019 Ankhlave Garden Project when we collaborated with the Manhattan Land Trust for a series of workshops in the East Village garden Parque De Tranquilidad.  In 2020, we received an a grant from the Queens Council on the Arts to present the 2020 Ankhlave Garden Project, with 6 female artists with immigrant backgrounds creating in the Queens Botanical Garden. In order to bring their great work to the public in keeping with social distance restrictions, AnkhLave produced its first documentary, Artists Unmasked:
