Shiloah Coley

Project Manager,


Shiloah is an artist, researcher, and cultural worker with experience collaborating with marginalized communities to design and co-create projects, programs, and exhibitions grounded in using the arts as a tool for liberation, agency-activation, and community building. She designed curriculum and facilitated projects with the Madison Public Library, Play Africa, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

She worked as a researcher with the Billie Holiday Center for Liberation Arts at Johns Hopkins University, where she investigated the implications of digital redlining on cultural preservation in Black communities. She also created educational zines and a database of free digital and tech resources in the city of Baltimore to aid Baltimoreans in their pursuit of preserving their history. Previously, she was a Sherman Fairchild Foundation Fellow at The Phillips Collection, where she collaborated with community partners at their off-site location in Southeast DC, Phillips@THEARC, to support exhibitions and collaborate on creative storytelling and promotional materials.
