2019 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1390

Yinka Orafidiya has been awarded the Window of Opportunity Grant to participate at the annual National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) conference, which will take place March 27-30, 2019 in Minneapolis, MN. 

Her involvement will include spearheading a Welcome Gathering during the conference for the incoming 2019 Fellows and alumni, participating on a panel discussion on how effective mentorship can foster the amplification of marginalized voices in institutional spaces, and hosting a networking event for ceramic artists of color at the conference.

Yinka hopes the conference will give her the opportunity to learn new technical skills, gain exposure to exceptional ceramic artworks, and further her development as a creative professional while realizing her goal of the unification and advancement of underrepresented artists through direct outreach to marginalized artists, collaborative discussions with allies, and active networking to influence community building beyond the conference.
