Thank You from Irfana

By: Irfana Jetha Noorani

After an incredible six years at the 11th Street Bridge Park and Building Bridges Across the River, I will be leaving my role as Deputy Director to work as an independent consultant. I hope to take the amazing work we’ve done together and share it with cultural institutions, public spaces and funders across the country.

I want to express my deepest gratitude for the friendships, partnerships and collaborations that have manifested for our team since the beginning of this project. The Ward 8 community — its residents, nonprofit leaders, faith community, artists and our staff — received me with great kindness and care and I am very thankful for your open hearts. I am really proud of the work we have done together, and it has been among one of my greatest honors to learn from you and work alongside you.

Thank you for Bridging DC with me. Can’t wait to walk across the Bridge Park with you!

With gratitude,

Irfana & Sky during the 2018 Anacostia River Festival
