Nadia B. has been a multi-disciplinary artist for the past 20 years. She practices media-arts and is also a singer-songwriter. 

Her stage name is Nadia High. 

As a graduate of Howard University’s (Washington D.C.) television/film production program – she has filmed, edited and directed social media projects, institutional short films, promotional pieces, artist profiles, music videos, live music performances as well as, feature- length documentaries. Much of her content focuses on unique voices and stories – culture, challenges facing various communities, identity, sex & sexuality, and the arts. 

She has worked with communities in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, South America, Spain and Morocco.

The first major platform for her work came in 2005 with her 62-min documentary film “Damaged Goods – a different kind of HIV film about living.” Showtime Networks picked up the film and after a successful run, went into Showtime on Demand for another year.  The film is a bold essay about six heterosexuals from different backgrounds, living with the challenges of HIV & AIDS. in Los Angeles.  

In 2009, the government of Trinidad and Tobago commissioned Nadia to work on a “local” version of Damaged Goods.  In 2011, she released the piece “Coming Home, Fighting AIDS with Culture” which takes a look the impact that traditional culture has on the disease. The piece featured the country’s top music artists, traditional religious leaders and advocates. The film has been used in several sexual health education programs and can be found in libraries throughout the region, as well as North America.
