INNOVATION & DESIGN LEAD
Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, Aisha Shillingford is an artist, trainer, facilitator and social change strategist who has been living in Boston since 1998. With over 15 years of community organizing and program development experience in Boston, Aisha dreams of a day when we all are living the truth that community 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 is a commitment to spiritual, social and cultural transformation.
Aisha 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. She is also a Senior Associate at the Interaction Institute for Social Change. 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 making functional objects.
She is obsessed with the role of mestizaje and creolization in fostering cultural shift and is trying to get free.
