August 1, 2016

What started as a casual conversation over tea and Sunday sunlight soon became, an impassioned and enriching revelation. The image below is a culmination of the Creative Conversation among 2016 Create Change fellows Dalaeja Foreman, Iván Gaete, and Walter Cruz:








Foreman, DalaejaDalaeja Foreman is a curator, arts administrator, community organizer, first generation Caribbean-American and Brooklyn native. Her curatorial work seeks to foster resistance and empowerment for oppressed communities by creating spaces for collective catharsis and critical discourse, becoming the catalyst for radical action.


Gaete, IvanIván Gaete is a multidisciplinary visual artist based in New York.​ ​His drawings, paper constructions, photographs, videos and installations are multi-­layered surveys that embrace chance, ambiguity and duality. He seeks to reveal the underlying order of nature and to raise questions about mobility, portability and labor gendering.


Cruz, WalterWalter Cruz‘s goal is to create work that inspires and informs Black and brown folks in a world that is constantly telling them not to love themselves.
