I am Iyanu, a black femme with Caribbean heritage. I am deeply interested in finding ways and solutions to radical healing and change for marginalized communities. I have always been impressed by how community and art can be used us a catalyst for liberation, so I hope to explore that further at my time with Lucie’s Place
