Current Graduate student and 2023 MFA candidate Behnaz Fatemi is the recipient a Region of Waterloo Funded Individual Artist Project grant for Mobile Safe Zones. Behnaz's interactive multi-media project involves the fabrication of human scale mobile structures which will allow the community to share lived experiences, or individual perceptions, in relation to living under oppressive regimes.

Congratulations as well to Fine Arts Alumni Michael Ambedien (MFA '01), Nadine Badran (BA '03), and Sheila McMath (MFA '01) who form Tri-City Stopgap Collective which was also one of this year's recipients.
