Amna Siddiqui firmly believes that everyone has the right to access, understand, and appreciate the objects they are looking at, living in, or sitting on. Her long-term goals include making art and design appealing to a wider audience. Amna’s background is in Art History, English, and Technology. She has been a fellow at the non-profit, America: Now and Here, and worked for organizations like the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Surface magazine. Before coming to D-Crit, Amna worked as a producer for an interactive agency and as a social media consultant. Her writing has appeared in Surface, Curbed NY, and Flavorwire.
