Tiffany O'Donnell talks to Akwi Nji, an Iowa-based artist creating in words, performance, and visual art. She specializes in creative personal narrative storytelling across artistic mediums and through producing and curating community-focused arts programming. Her work and words have appeared on stage from California's Wine Country to New York's Fashion Week to Women Lead Change. She has worked with us on several projects over the years, including the recent piece, Years Ahead, featured in the WLC 15-year anniversary video. She is creator of The Remoir Project, a nationwide audio and visual storytelling arts initiative, and a champion of the artist and the arts through her role as producer of multimedia arts events in the Midwest.
On today's episode, Akwi talks about how her childhood in Cameroon, Africa, helped make her the creative she is today and gives insight into her inspiration for the Years Ahead piece which you can view here.
