“As a society and arts sector we need to be focused on telling and sharing all of our stories vs. one upping one another. We need to cultivate a collective consciousness that thrives on equality, inclusivity and a tapestry of many perspectives. There is a lot of work to do, and my teams and I are devoted to doing it. We aren’t out here trying to change one mind, we are trying to change the world”


As a documentarian, her debut project is 'The Black Academy'--an anthology of truths gathered from BIPOC women academics and creatives. As a member of the Story Money Impact community Deydra has a main line to tools, community and training that empowers her to be an effective Impact Producer: a still emerging role in the arts that involves stewarding creative projects with a social impact in a way that maximizes reach, connects with a wide audiences and inspires tangible calls to action.
