    Returning Home

    Our collective practice begins with a reflection into varying themes that we believe to be cornerstones of our diasporic experience. It continues with an invitation for the community to investigate these themes with us through communal healing and coalition building. We exist an arts space, a hub for dialogue and critical consciousness, a multimedia realm, and a center for solidarity and social practice.

    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.
