NOW!

What De Angela is up to right now! (This brilliant idea is taken from Derek Siver’s now page.)

De Angela currently lives, works, and plays in New York City. Professionally, she is an Associate Vice Provost and Industry Professor at NYU, but for her now page, she will focus primarily on her personal, passion projects which more often than not evolve around Prince:

  • Prepping for two different Time Warrior Workshops for the NYU Office of Work Life in July 2020. One is about time/life management & productivity and the other is about project management with Asana.
  • Prepping for NYU TeachTalks presentation about student engagement in project-based learning (in-person, online, and remotely) in July 2020
  • Documenting and archiving 2020’s Prince #DM40GB30 virtual symposium for 40 yrs of Dirty Mind & 30 yrs of Graffiti Bridge.
  • Planning my next Prince event, #SOTTSDC, a SOTT super deluxe celebration in Oct. 2020.
  • Planning my next Prince symposium, #1plus1plus1is3 for 40 yrs of Controversy, 30 yrs of Diamonds & Pearls, and 20 yrs of The Rainbow Children in 2021.
  • Researching and preparing my presentation, “Pour Some Water on Me: Prince and the Ohio Players,” for The Second Dayton Funk Symposium at the University of Dayton on September 24-26, 2020.
