ReCreative Fellowship Program

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. Additional opportunities to participate in ReCreative programming are available throughout the Fellowship.

Fellowships may range from 3 months to one year.
Applications for the 2018/19 cycle will be available in the fall of 2017.

Risikat Okedeyi

A long-time lynchpin in the DC arts scene, Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi shares her time between two passions: cultural architecture and teaching.  Kat is a self-defined cultural architect and owner of LiL SoSo Productions, LLC (www.lilsoso.com) where she creates high-quality nightlife experiences, produces and directs conversations on and around progressive culture and aesthetics, and works with artists and creatives of all sorts in a variety of branding and administrative capacities. In addition, she is an associate professor in the English department at Prince George's Community College where she teaches courses in composition writing, specializes in African-American  and world literatures and also serves as the college's director for its Book Bridge Project. She is also adjunct faculty at Bowie State University and teaches a course on self promotion and marketing as part of the university's Visual Communication & Digital Media Arts program.

Seeing EYE Woman is 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.
