So excited to share this news with you!!!!
It was just announced that I am one of 16 recipients of the 2018 Artist Trust Fellowship ~ “an unrestricted grant program that awards $7,500 to practicing professional artists of exceptional talent and ability.” (You can read the full press release here.) I am in awe of all that Artist Trust does to support the arts and artists across Washington state! And I am grateful to the Jurors for their time and thoughtful deliberation — and for their kind consideration of my application. Having served on numerous film festival and grant juries, I’m aware what a time and energy commitment it is to review and deliberate over hundreds of submissions…
This news has me Standing Taller and Breathing Deeper. With this generous Fellowship, I will finally have the time and resources to complete the ambitious project I started during my COCA residency last year. The Truth Has No Borders is a multi-media installation that integrates 40 years exploring my family narrative through writing, music, film and art.
And finally, a Huge congrats to my fellow Fellows! I am deeply honored to be in the company of so much Excellence.
