ISE-DA • ìṣèda
Yoruba to English Translation: creation
ISE-DA is a platform focused on supporting international Black contemporary art. Our end goal? A connected community of young Black people who are interested, invested and informed about art across the Diaspora.
ISE-DA aims to cultivate a pioneering generation of collectors and artists who will push arts culture forward and who are invested in the social and financial growth of cultural hubs in Black communities.
Through our hosted panels and workshops, ISE-DA provides resources for our community to learn about the workings of the commercial art industry. We aim to dispel common misconceptions about participating within the industry, building an art collection, and sustainable career prospects available. Our international network and outlook further allow for our community to be knowledgeable about Black arts movements and cultures cross-nationally.
A core aspect to ISE-DA is being able to reimagine what the art ecosystem and art engagement looks like for our community. This includes experimenting with various exhibition formats, promoting collective exhibitions and transforming how our community interacts with art.
