Our Window of Opportunity (WOO) Grant launched last year as a means to fund time-sensitive opportunities that support the art for social change practices of Leeway grantees.
We are happy to announce February's WOO grantees:
Lela Aisha Jones (LTA '15) will participate in a week-long residency with multiple public and community-based components in Minnesota's Twin Cities. She will perform Native Portals as part of an evening curated by St. Paul's Brownbody, an original repertory whose mission is to build artistic experiences that disrupt biased narratives and prompts audiences to engage as active participants in the journey.
Yinka Orafidiya (ACG '10) will exhibit her most recent body of work, Freedom Cups, during the 2018 National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Conference in Pittsburgh, PA. The conference, which runs March 14-17, 2018, will attract an estimated 5,000 ceramic artists, collectors, and curators from around the world.
