Bellagio Residency: February 2023

Project: “Sharing Lessons To Africa From Africa”

Crystal Simeoni is a Pan-African feminist activist and Director of Nawi – the Afrifem Macroeconomics Collective (The Nawi Collective). She works at the intersection of the technical and the colloquial, of critique and imagination, of knowledge and practice, of language and of the creation of community. She curates the work of the Nawi collective who, in community with other African feminists and organizations, work on analyzing, influencing and reimagining macro level economic policies and narratives. In her understanding, in her critique and her imagining of a different way, her work is always at the service of life.
