    The cornerstone of the work of our collective is to imagine new and unlimited possibilities for women of color and to create these new possibilities is a collective and community effort from women of various backgrounds, identities and industries. We invite the SXSW community to come together to discuss the ideas of communal healing and community building for the sake of conceptualizing a future where brown lives are not simply fighting for survival in order to flourish - instead a future where people of color are safe and enjoy life in its fullness in body, mind and spirit. We call on attendees to meet, share, and listen to the stories and experiences of other attendees as forms of healing, strategizing and building.

    This event is part of Transcending Time, a theme that the Black Girl Magik collective explored and invited the community to investigate with us through a practice of communal healing and coalition building.

    Transcending Time

    “Transcending Time” is a voyage into a future where Black identity is unfettered by a predetermined architecture. It is a visualization exercise exploring the texture, pattern, sound and rhythm of Black possibility. Who do we become when healing from trauma is decentralized? We are creating a ceremony of self-authorization. We are giving ourselves permission to reimagine what was, what is and what can be.

    Reclaiming Pleasure

    "Reclaiming Pleasure" is the assertion of sexual power, alongside a period of recovery. It is a Black woman finding strength in her sensuality and grounding autonomy in the realms of pleasure and desire. It is the rejection of standards set on our ancestors and the distinction between agency and objectification.

    Returning Home

    “Returning Home” is an exploration back to lands, rituals and traditions that we have always known. It is voyaging and feeling at home as soon as you step foot on the ground. It is hearing music and your soul perceiving the frequencies. It is seeing a familiar face and knowing that somehow you have met before. “Returning Home” is a return to self.
