Portrait of Nia Scott

Nia Scott is an alumna of the 8th cohort of First Wave and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She won a Emmy with Zhalarina Sanders of First Wave’s 5th cohort. Nia graduated from UW-Madison in 2019 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Art with an emphasis on video installation and performance. After graduation, Nia worked for PBS Wisconsin as an associate television artist – editing for broadcasts, filming the news, working on various PBS creative projects, and making 100 videos per week. In her personal practice, Nia is a 4-D interdisciplinary artist whose work is centered in hip-hop, mental health and the multiplicity of self. Fun fact about Nia: she used to build doors! Really heavy ones! She can probably pick you up but don’t worry – she won’t try. Her favorite things to do are make playlists, cook new recipes, and she is a self-certified smoothie aficionado.
