Turn The Spotlight, an organization whose mission is, "to identify, nurture, and empower leaders – and in turn, to illuminate the path to a more equitable future in the arts," has included me in their inaugural class of Lumos Fellows! I'm beyond excited to be listed amongst this group of dynamic artists working to make a difference in their fields as well as their communities. It is a refreshing thing when you can find like-minded people and I'm blessed to have several like-minded colleagues in this cohort. Read the press release and check out the website to learn more about the program and these dope artists!
As part of the fellowship, I will be mentored by Avery Willis Hoffman, Program Director at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City. She's collaborated with Peter Sellars over the last several years and had a major role in helping shape the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. Bad. Ass.
I am so thankful to everyone who has supported my growth and development over the years. I promise to use this opportunity to deepen my dedication to my ultimate purpose
More soon. Positive vibrations!
