" “Creative and self-driven initiatives supported by experts to solve the most difficult problems on the planet. Millennium Fellowship is a collaboratory that gives students to practice their knowledge and communication skills at both local and global levels. Through the fellowship, I will be able to ground my prior experience and knowledge to support UN Sustainable Development Goals, and I will have the opportunity to use and improve my problem-solving skills.” "
Millennium Fellowship Project: ARTIN NYC
ARTIN NYC is an online platform specifically for women and LGBTQ+ artists, digitalizing an art gallery. For a long time, traditional art galleries have not been accessible for both artists (women and LGBTQ+) and the audience in terms of locations and opportunities; the artwork of women and LGBTQ+ is often undervalued and is not offered to be exhibited in the physical gallery. Due to the COVID-19, art galleries became even more inaccessible for many people. Therefore, ARTIN NYC stepped into the market to shorten the gender gap in art and gave the artists the to showcase their works without a barrier.
