Tanya Cerda is an interdisciplinary BIPOC artist whose vibrant identity and cultural heritage serve as powerful catalysts for fostering diverse and inclusive environments. With over 15 years of experience in creative industries such as fashion, entertainment, and advertising, Tanya has developed a keen understanding of the transformative power that art and media play in shaping narratives and driving social change. Motivated by her commitment to effect positive change, Tanya transitioned into arts education and philanthropy recognizing the profound impact she could have by fostering the growth and empowerment of emerging artists.
