“This fellowship at the ICF was different; it gave me the permission and practical support I needed to explore and experiment with my own interests. At my own pace, I had an open-ended opportunity to connect to other cultural practitioners and new ideas through ICF’s archive and extended networks.”
Yewande YoYo Odunubi, 2021-22 Diasporic Animateur Curatorial Fellow
“The opportunity to be part of the Diaspora Pavilion project at ICF has been an immeasurable experience in my early career as a practicing artist to date.”
