Ify Chiejina, Visual Artist

It has benefitted me greatly to know CCCADI. As a first-generation Nigerian female visual artist, it was such a blessing to see my works featured for their winter Exhibition: After Afropolitan.

I was very inspired by the conferences for that exhibition. I’m always coming into the realization that there’s still a lot for me to understand in regards to African, African Diaspora, Black, and world history. CCCADI does a great job in providing spaces for education. I am also joyful to have participated in their Community Arts University Without Walls Program, and travel with them to Puerto Rico.
