Roxanne Fernandes is an arts and culture worker, academic, and (re)emerging artist working in the city of Toronto. Having graduated from the University of Toronto with a BA in Art History and Film Studies, her focus lies in contemporary photography and film with special interest in programming and public/community-driven art. She is currently in the process of earning a Graduate Certificate from Humber College in Arts Administration & Cultural Management and hopes to apply learned skills on cultural policy, planning, pluralism, and diversity to her research and practice, as well as a future in curation.
Most recently, she was part of the MultiplicityTO project – a student-run online publication focusing on the theme of “multiplicity” within the lives of Toronto artists. For the project, she crafted interview questions, met with artists, took photographs, and assisted in building the final website: multiplicityto.com.
Currently, she is pondering the topics of the Guyanese diaspora, identity, and intimacy.
