Hello Loves, my name is Alicia DeLarge and I am Production Designer based in the city of Philadelphia, PA. My mission is to serve my community through the curation of immersive and engaging environments in order to share and elevate necessary Black narratives through the art of physical storytelling.
I aspire to pioneer alternative curatorial practices that will create room on elevated platforms, digitally and tangibly, to allow the stories of marginalized populations to take up the space they deserve.
My goal is to serve my community as a whole but specifically Black men, women, and students; creating access through art with my gift of design.
WHAT IS THE DELARGE SENDOFF?
The DeLarge SendOff is a celebration of God giving me the opportunity to take this leap of faith to pursue new possibilities for my son I; as well as to further my education in order to serve my global community in a greater capacity with my gift of design.
I am so grateful to be a part of such a vibrant and supportive community in Philadelphia. This community has poured into me, loved me, and elevated me over the years and has allowed me to do the same for them. In order to pursue my goals, I need the love, care, and support of my global community yet again to raise money for me to attend the University of London.
WHAT AM I ASKING FOR?
I am aiming to raise $50, 000 in order to cover the cost for my tuition, room, and board for my one-year intensive program at SOAS University of London.
I am inviting all of you to financially support me on my journey to attend the University of London School of Oriental and African Studies to pursue a Masters degree in Curating Cultures. This one year intensive program will allow me to learn the art of museum curation in a prestigious setting.
Along with allowing me the opportunity to raise my son, Caleb DeLarge, overseas and expose my him to a different experience as an African American male. To show him that there is more for him outside of what America tells him is for him. I have prayed for this opportunity and have worked towards this moment all of my career. I am so grateful to be surrounded by all of you as I embark on this new chapter of my life.
