CELEBRATION OF ART & CULTURE
Skunder Boghossian. Ethiopian painter, opened the door to a deeper understanding of Africa and world-class contemporary art during his 25+ years as professor at Howard University.
Join us in launching the Skunder Boghossian Fellowship. YOUR donation of $5, $10 or more will help us reach our goal in presenting 4 Fellowship awards to Washington DC metro college interns on September 22.
This fellowship will introduce students majoring in the arts, humanities and social sciences to the world of development as well as discovering how the arts can be used as a tool for empowerment in development. During the internship experience, the selected interns will work on different projects, but will ultimately collaborate to develop a final presentation that will tie their work together. Interns will present their final product at the upcoming Skunder Tribute. Further, students will attend appropriate lectures and engage in research that will further enrich their internship experience.
