Cultural Arts + Activism Studios
The Nuwu Art, Cultural Arts + Activism Complex is a POC-owned and operated space in Las Vegas, Nevada, that works to uplift all communities through strengthening cultural knowledge and identity through the arts, activism, and education. We advocate for the equity of our respective and collective communities through an ongoing process of decolonization and celebration of our rich cultural heritages.
The Nuwu Art team consists of artivist Fawn Douglas and educator Dr. A.B. Wilkinson. Fawn is an Indigenous artist + activist who is currently completing the MFA program at UNLV. Her practice includes the intersections of art, social justice, community, education, culture, identity, and place. A.B. is an associate professor in the Department of History at UNLV and is the author of Blurring the Lines of Race and Freedom: Mulattoes and Mixed Bloods in English Colonial America (UNC Press, 2020). He has research and teaching interests in African American history, Native American history, Ethnic Studies, decolonial theory and critical race theory in the Americas, including the U.S., Latin America, and the Caribbean.
