About the Artist
Nana Duffuor is a writer, performer, and producer of Ghanaian descent, based in Oakland, CA. With support from a successful community crowdfunding campaign, Nana’s multidisciplinary work, Sprint, debuted in June 2018 as part of the Queer Cultural Center’s National Queer Arts Festival.
With this autobiographical performance piece, Nana incorporates original poetry, film, theater, music, and dance to tell a powerful coming of age story. In 2018, Sprint was awarded a committed fund grant from the East Bay Community Foundation’s East Bay Fund for Artists. Nana is a member of the 2018 New York Fund for Artists’ Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program. She is interested in bringing both the film and theater components of Sprint to wider audiences while developing herself as an artist and entrepreneur rooted in justice.
