Awakenings Artist

“I can't stop thinking about all of the possibilities the Awakening program has to offer. My imagination keeps going in so many directions, we have an opportunity to devise and present something unique to each person and each space. It's kind of a once in a lifetime chance and I can't wait to see what we create together!”

They continue to grow and make it their mission to uplift projects that put BIPOC Queer artists in the spotlight. They create and develop communities that are run by and for racialized and queer artist.
