"Through this fellowship, I seek to further my curatorial trajectory by honing in on best practices of artist-run platforms and formulate relevant/ sustainable/ replicable development initiatives for emerging creative communities. I envision opening up direct resource access to BIPOC artists (time, space, community, mentorship) in a pilot program designed to nurture and empower peer-to-peer coalition and explore the contemporary feasibility of grassroots artists providing sustainable core-building support for fellow creatives."
