Willow Naomi Curry is a writer, researcher, and social practice artist based in Houston, Texas. Her writing, both literary and journalistic, has appeared in local, national, and international publications, and she is the 2020 Writer-in-Residence for the Houston Museum of African-American Culture. Willow’s interest in communicating ideas across artistic disciplines and her commitment to preserving the heritage of historically Black communities led her to the field of social practice art. In 2019 as an inaugural DiverseWorks Project Freeway Fellow, Willow created her first social practice artwork, the place-based writing workshop series Letters & Lives, currently in its second year. She is also at work on her second social practice work, the photography exhibition The Fourth Ward Photo Parlour.
