Congratulations to IMA students Kiara Holley and Luca Lee, the recipients of this summer’s Whose Land? IMA Fellowships. Luca and Kiara will each receive $5,000 and will be working with Profs. Kelly Anderson and James Levy to identify organizational partners and sites where they can explore histories of land loss, dispossession, and migration through the lens of racial equity, and foster a shared understanding of land justice for the future.
This project is funded by the Ford Foundation and the Whiting Foundation, and the research will result in a podcast and community-based archive for the Whose Land? project. The work done this summer will also support this fall’s class IMA 771: Community Media, Advocacy and the Urban Environment.
