 I am Kendriana Washington, a writer, artist and speaker. My work centers the themes of culture, race, gender, sexuality, relationships, futurism, spirituality and activism. I use performance, mixed mediums and the internet to create honest and liberating art, media and literature. I share my work though Kendriana Speaks on various social media platforms and most interactively on Instagram and my blog. I grew up in Dallas, TX where I began my career in the creative world in museum programming and as a public relations assistant. I also organized city-wide collaborative performances with local artists during my time as a student at The University of Texas at Dallas. Presently, I write online and I'm creating pieces for a solo art project exploring utopias and the identity presentation of marginalized bodies in covertly oppressive spaces. I also design and issue nationally consigned art-poetry zines and work as an independent social consultant.

 Would you like to hire me? I can contribute to your project or publication as a writer, artist and consultant. You can book me to speak about the intersections of race and gender. I am also taking art commissions. Please forward all inquiries to hello [at] kendriana [dot] com.
