Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi has been named the first ReCreative Fellow! The ReCreative Fellowship program is designed to support the creation of new artistic work by prominent DMV-based artists + scholars. Fellows may be creating work in any genre. ReCreative Spaces supports the Fellow by offering 1) workspace; 2) weekly check-ins and mentorship; 3) event space to host monthly gatherings and programs that support the work, and allow a chance to update the public on the Fellow’s progress.
During her time as the ReCreative Fellow, Kat will be working on her latest concept, Seeing EYE Woman. She describes it as, “A multi-disciplinary project that is part memoir and part cultural critique where I bring together my worldview through photography, essays, poems and text. My story is a complex one about identity, spiritual questing and salvation in the face of loss. As if I am looking down on my life, I am cognizant that the amalgamation of the deeply personal with the intentionally critical is the only way to my truth.”
A special reception will beheld on Thursday, April 20th at 7PM. RSVP here to attend.
