Kitchen of the Orisha w/ Kea'nia Gulley

kitchen.jpg

Seed Root and Bloom is hosting their last workshop in their Food Medicine series 2018 Kitchen of the Orisha: Feed Your Soul the Way you feed your Belly.

Black women hold witness to the trauma of our experiences on American soil, while our bodies, and souls, are the birthplace of communities. The internalization of these experiences leaves us ill-equipped to heal ourselves and the communities we love. Blackbird Bliss is an exploration of feeding chakras directly connected to nurturing the power of women. Looking at the sacral and heart chakras, we will love on each other while we discuss the importance of this healing modality, identify signs of imbalance, and work with foods to awaken our divine energy. Spirituality, sexuality, health, and mental fortitude are all connected. This space will explore this interconnectivity while learning recipes and rituals to take care of ourselves as women of color.

Seed Root and Bloom is the creation of Bellx, a 2018 EL Participant

The Estuaries Project: Kickstarter

estuaries.jpg

The Estuaries Project is the artistic dream of Kendra Hicks, EL 2017 Participant. Contribute to the Kickstarter here and we will post the exact dates the installs will go live shortly.

We’re in a time right now where everything seems to be on coming undone and as a movement, we’re spending a disproportionate and necessary amount of time putting out fires and resisting the systems of oppression we have to navigate every day. This project is an invitation, for people who want to spend time thinking about, playing with and helping cultivate life affirming systems. How will we use these endings as beginnings? What new ecosystems will we leave behind? How will we respond to this moment with the creative vision and spiritual audacity necessary to thrive? [click here for an example] 

This phase of the project is focused on honoring the lives of these women through installations that will be erected at the location where they were found on the 40th anniversary of their deaths. [If you know these women or know any surviving family members please contact me here]

  •  Christine (Chris) Ricketts, 15

  • Andrea Foye, 17 

  • Gwendolyn Yvette Stinson,15

  • Caren Prater, 25

  • Daryal Ann Hargett, 29

  • Desiree Denise Etheridge, 17

  • Darlene Rogers, 22

  • Lois Hood Nesbitt, 31

  • Valyric Holland, 19

  • Sandra Boulware, 30

  • Bobbie Jean Graham, 34

By supporting this project you wont just be bringing these installations to life but you'll also be helping cultivate our collective memory in the service of strengthening our collective imagination.

Remember. Imagine. Experiment.
