ICOA’s most recent artist-in-residence spoke with the public radio news program The World on June 25 about the troubled state of journalism and democracy in Nicaragua. He also spoke about his own situation as a dissident in exile.
ICOA provides refuge in Ithaca, New York, for writers and artists whose works are suppressed, whose lives are threatened, whose cultures are vanishing, and whose languages are endangered. We also advocate for human rights and freedom of expression. ICOA is an all-volunteer project of the Center for Transformative Action and a member of theInternational Cities of Refuge Network.
