Posted @withregram • @saic.maaap Congrats to Roberto Bedoya (MAAAP, 2005) for receiving the 2021 Berresford Prize.
Throughout his career, Bedoya has consistently supported artist-centered cultural practices and advocated for expanded definitions of inclusion and belonging in the cultural sector.
He is an outspoken advocate for diversifying the arts and redefining our relationships within art institutions and environments. His writing and organizing on the politics of space, place-keeping, and other vital ideas around “belonging” have generated change and ongoing conversation at a policy and institutional level.
Roberto Bedoya is currently the Cultural Affairs Manager of the City of Oakland, where he recently unveiled the city’s first cultural plan in 30 years.
