The Brooklyn Children’s Museum has appointed Trinidadian-American Daniela Fifi as its new vice president of programs and education, reports Alexandra Simon for Caribbean Life. The Crown Heights location of the museum is an added benefit for Fifi.

“No other borough subsection comes close to the distinctly non-hispanic Caribbean character of Central Brooklyn, personally for me, being Trinidadian — working in Crown Heights feels like home and having the ability to develop programs for the Caribbean community is exciting,” she said.

What does she have in mind for the museum?

“I like the idea of bringing an artist-in-residency program to the museum — I would love to build a deeper connection between Brooklyn artists and the museum into a wider framework of the museum’s current programming,” said Fifi. “Specifically artists that are passionate about developing projects on cross-cultural literacy to children with diverse cultural backgrounds.”
