Nkem Ndefo and MoMA staff welcome you to an online Slow Looking session focused on the work of artist Kenturah Davis. Our intention is to offer a welcoming, calm space for individuals to experience and respond to art together. Slow Looking is part of the initiative Artful Practices for Well-Being, which offers ideas for connectedness and healing through art.
Nkem Ndefo is the founder of Lumos Transforms and creator of the Resilience Toolkit, a model that promotes embodied self-awareness and self-regulation in an ecologically sensitive framework and social justice context. Licensed as a nurse midwife, Ndefo also has extensive post-graduate training in complementary health modalities and emotional therapies, and has worked in settings ranging from large-volume hospitals to mobile community clinics. She brings an abundance of experience as a clinician, educator, consultant, and community strategist to innovative programs that address trauma and inequity, build resilience, and shape liberatory change for individuals, organizations, and communities across sectors, both in her home country (USA) and internationally. Ndefo is particularly interested in working alongside people most impacted by violence and marginalization.
