As the Residency Program Manager at the Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) Nina collaborated to implement unique programs that bring innovation and greater social impact to the historic residency program. These programs support international artists within the unique cultural and physical landscape of Northern New Mexico, where they are encouraged to engage with diverse communities and address some of the most pressing issues of our time. The SFAI Residency Program hosts more than 60 international artists a year, and has a reputation as one of the most impactful residencies for social practice and interdisciplinary artists and activists. Strategic partnerships include the Canada Council for the Arts, the Taiwanese Ministry of Culture, the Greek Fulbright Foundation, as well as regional organizations such as Moving Arts Espanola, the Acequia Association, and Creative Santa Fe. The program received the 2015 Robert Rauschenburg Award for Arts and Activism, and is supported by the NEA, the McCune Foundation, the Sustainable Arts Foundation, the Warhol Foundation, the Rasmuson Foundation, among others. http://sfai.org/
