who we are
Our Board of Directors
Fine artist Mellezia is the Founding Director of The RENA Initiative.
Mellezia is passionate about sharing the mental health and wellbeing benefits of participation in the arts. This passion led to her establishing ‘The RENA Initiative presents: The WoWC’ painting workshops for women who are isolated, unemployed or elderly on White City Estate; the area in West London where she was raised.
Supported by Arts Council England, Mellezia is currently creating art for her solo exhibition ‘AuthentiCity’ at Westfield W12. These works will celebrate the people & landmarks of White City & explore the contribution of place to identity. This exhibition will be open to the public from April – December 2020.
