Welcome to New Team Members!
Artengine welcomes Najeeba Ahmed and Mercedes Ventura to our team as part of a new internship program.
Najeeba (they/them) is an artist and designer with a bachelor’s degree in biology and visual arts at the University of Ottawa. They are currently doing their Masters research on nakshi kantha in Bangladesh.
Mercedes (she/her/they) is an artist working across photo, textile, web and media projects, Instagram (as medium), performative self-portraits and, of course, memes. Their work functions as autobiographical fiction investigating new spaces of the digital era.
Najeeba and Mercedes will be helping develop the new artengine.ca space, expanding its capacity and developing new content for our growing Ideas section.
This initiative is supported by the DIGITAL SKILLS FOR YOUTH (DS4Y) administered by Independent Media Arts alliance and funded by the Government of Canada.
