datejie was FIMS Asper Fellow in Media 2015, where she produced the public event series, ``Dialogues with Solidarity Conscious Knowlege Workers`` to bring the intellect and creativity of marginalized artist and advocate practitioner-scholars into open conversation. In this project she advanced her thinking on the need for collective self-organizing in this age of disruption, and how principles of intersectional solidarity and sustainable livelihoods must be at the core. Recognizing that established institutions are lagging far behind, she has been strategically cross-pollinating her networks of people advocating for social justice and social innovation, including through engagement with projects such as Toronto's Centre for Social Innovation at Regent Park, the North Side Hip Hop Archive, the Ali Mustafa Memorial Collective, and the Tigrinya-language repository, ``Eritrean Oral Poetry - A Portrayal of History.”
