Rhodessa Jones, Idris Ackamoor Selected as US Department of State Arts Envoys

Rhodessa Jones and Idris Ackamoor have just been selected as "ARTS ENVOYS" by the U.S. Department of State, Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau!! As two of the Bay Area's most revered artists they received grant support to represent San Francisco as they journey to South Africa to continue their work in collaboration with Urban Voices Festival inside the Naturena Women's Prison in Johannesburg, South Africa and then journey on to participate in the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, South Africa. This unprecedented support for Cultural Odyssey's international cultural exchange program is testament to the continued artistic vision of Rhodessa and Idris. Sharing their unique brand of "ART AS SOCIAL ACTIVISM" with the global community sheds light on ALL of the exceptional artists who reside and conduct their work in SAN FRANCISCO!!
