Chrislene DeJean has been creating mischief since birth and continues to by hacking social justice issues at Intelligent Mischief. She is a Boston native born to two great Haitian parents. Smith graduate with a B.A. in government and dance minor, those two degrees reflect her passion for social movement and physical movement. She’s currently serving on several Boston local initiatives: Mattapan United Steering Committee, Mattapan Cultural Arts Development, and African Repertory Theater. She is also the Boston cultural agent for the US Department of Arts and Culture. She really loves to dance, if she hasn’t already mentioned it, especially afro-diasporic dances. Her dream is to do ethnographic dance research for an excuse to keep on dancing all day. Before Intelligent Mischief, she worked as an sexual health educator at a teen health center. This is where she began her practice of participatory art work on projects to communicate reproductive health issues.

Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, Aisha Shillingford is a freelance artist, trainer, facilitator and social change strategist who has been living in Boston for the past 16 years. With over 15 years of community organizing and program development experience in Boston, Aisha dreams of a day when we all believe that community really is the answer to every problem and when we are truly prefiguring the community we wish to see in our every day practices as change makers.

She received her BA in Environmental Analysis and Policy in 2002 from Boston University, an MSW in Macro Practice with a focus on Children, Youth, and Families in 2009 from Boston College, and an MBA in Social Entrepreneurship in 2014 from Simmons College. Aisha gets her jollies building the cooperative movement and ending all oppression by working with the Boston Center for Community Ownership and palling around with the AORTA Collective. On an ordinary day she can be found riding her bike around the city, picking up trash for her found-object-art obsession, and sewing random articles of clothing and functional objects. 

Aisha has completed the Art of Transformational Consulting Training, the Facilitative Leadership Training, and the Facilitative Leadership for Racial Justice training. Her biggest art inspirations include: El Anatsui, Ai Wei Wei, Basquiat. She is pretty excited about the role of mestizaje and creolization in fostering cultural shift and is trying to get free.
