adé PROJECT presents: Black STARSEED
67 Broadway St, Asheville, NC 28801, USA
On Oct 30, Artists Designing Evolution (adé PROJECT) is joining forces with PechaKucha Night Asheville to celebrate the voices of those most often silenced and left to bear witness to destruction, then bear the burden of resilience. We are Black women, we are mothers, we are daughters, we are sisters, we are Queens. We are Black STARSEED. This is revolutionary reimagination and #artisourRESPONSE. This event is a re-routing of sorts, a ceremony and celebration, of our circling back to our own truth and telling it for ourselves. Each story weaver who will be sharing, is a healing artist in her own way. It is our honor to welcome them and hold space for this very sacred and necessary moment in community together. The lineup features::
Ann-Lee Waite | Cortina Jenelle (MC) | Lucia DaughertyMichele Ashley | Miranda Williams | Olufemi Lewis | Sasha Mitchell
To control a narrative is to hold power. Reclaiming control of our own narrative is the key to healing the traumas of the past. Disempowerment at the hands of oppressive systems left our ancient legacy fractured, many parts of it scattered- while generation after generation has attempted to piece it back together like a broken vase. We are Black STARSEED – healers of the past and keepers of the future. Story weavers. Our planting of seeds and reaching for stars has always informed humanity’s existence. Our reclaimed stories are the seeds planted, as we reach for OURSELVES. No longer fractured and scattered out of one another’s reach, we instead are scattered across the black of the night sky, illuminating our own path forward. Just as we carried civilization in our womb, we carry the dreams for our children in our hair. Anchoring the planet between sun and moon, we are the song of our ancestors. Let us hear. Let us see. Let us know.
