Rachel Y. DeGuzman is the award-winning CEO of 21st Century Arts, Inc., and founder of WOC ART COLLABORATIVE. The focus of her work is decentering whiteness in arts/culture by centering the art, narratives, and voices of people of color. In fulfillment of that vision, Rachel established “At the Crossroads: Activating the Intersection of Art” and Justice, an initiative presented by 21st Century Arts. Since it launched , “At the Crossroads” has produced over 44 Long Table Conversations and Installations. Her current work culminated from a traditional career in professional arts with the intent to produce work more rooted in both art and community – that values experimentation, innovation, creativity in all its forms, social justice, and equity.
