Bianca Mońa is a lover of the arts. As an artist, curator, educator, and advocate, she has initiated a number of projects at institutions such as Studio Museum in Harlem (New York, NY) and The John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (Washington, DC), and Market Photo Workshop (Johannesburg, SA).
All of her artistic endeavors center on a greater understanding of contemporary Africa and her Diaspora. In addition, she is particularly keen on investigative projects that tackle the living histories of regular citizens who negotiate grand topics such as gender and social-economic placement. As an oral historian and sound artist she had received commissions from The Laundromat Project, Initiatives of Change USA, and Culture Push. She is currently an artist-in-residence at Storytelling for Collective Healing, Restorative Justice. To listen to her work, visit https://soundcloud.com/user-47077213.
