2021 California Arts Council Administrators of Color Fellow


Nanette is one of 10 artists in the state of California chosen for the 2021 California Arts Council Administrators of Color Fellowship. By collaboration with host organization, fellows will address equity and community engagement by creating and preserving the cultural identities of all California communities.


In partnership with the California Arts Council and SVCreates, the California Arts Council Administrators of Color Fellowship is administered by the School of Arts and Culture. Programming is made possible in part by a grant from the James Irvine Foundation. 


As the fellow for the Greater Northern Region (Upstate California), Nanette's host organization is Ink People Center for the Arts. Started in 1979, Ink People changes lives by connecting the community with resources for cultural development, encouraging people to exercise their humanity, build civic discourse, and engage their creative potential.
