Tanya Selvaratnam

Born in Sri Lanka and raised in Long Beach, CA, I am a writer, an actor, a producer, and an activist and the Communications & Special Projects Officer for the Rubell Family Collection. I have produced films and projects by directors such as Chiara Clemente, Catherine Gund, Mickalene Thomas, and Carrie Mae Weems. I've worked with the Third Wave Foundation, Ms. Foundation for Women, and World Health Organization; and I'm an advisor to The Do School. My book, The Big Lie, came out in January 2014 from Prometheus Books, distributed by Random House. Please check out the links for more info. Thank you for visiting.
