Profile Picture
Fabiyino (​fah-bee-yee-nah​) Germain-Bajowa is a Nigerian-Canadian writer, curator, and interdisciplinary artist based in Tkaronto/Toronto. Her writing engages Afro-diasporic archives of thought and memory, passed down through oral history, food, and acts of care. Her art practice and research centre Afro-diasporic experience to build an understanding of the ways archives of physical and immaterial knowledge are constructed in the Black community through the lenses of care theory, Afro-futurism, and archival studies. Her practice emphasizes community building and support, and her work is often based on her lived experiences as a Black queer woman. She is currently pursuing a BFA at OCAD University.
