Arno Mokros

Brooklyn, NY

Arno Mokros is a queer/trans writer and arts organizer based in Brooklyn, NY. In 2016, he co-founded Little Pharma, a project that began as an anthology-style zine compiling the visual and written creative work of artists grappling with mental illness in their lives and in their work. Little Pharma has since evolved (and continues to evolve) into a broadened initiative organized around topics, issues, and the needs of artists living and working with mental illness. In addition to presenting creative projects informed by mental illness, we aim to distribute and share knowledge and resources that encourage new paradigms for artists living and working with mental illness. Arno is the Creative Culture Program Coordinator at the Jacob Burns Film Center.
