with the black girl magik collective
Meet the Collective
We are a collective of artists, community organizers and makers conjuring a transnational sisterhood for women across the African diaspora. 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.
