More about #DignityInProcess:

#DignityInProcess is a multidisciplinary platform in response to the Black Lives Matter movement merging art activism, ancestral healing, and intersectional identity evolution within the Afro-Indigenous Diaspora. Bringing together movement, ritual, storytelling, and collective artmaking, #DignityInProcess draws upon the practices that have sourced the resilience of our ancestors for generations. Gathering Wisdom Councils of Mixed Race, African-Native American, and Creole elders, multi-generational conversations lay the foundation for embodied accountability to sustain a movement of Black Liberation. Afro-futures emerge through this series of site-specific performances, arts-based direct actions, and community workshops celebrating the dignity of Black evolution. Follow the process at http://che-art.life/ or contact Artistic Director, ChE at che.art.life@gmail.com.

#DignityInProcess is made possible with support from the New Orleans Loving Festival, Cafe Istanbul, Ashé Cultural Arts Center, Congo Square Preservation Society, Press Street's Antenna Gallery, Gulf Coast Rising, the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation, www.myheartsleeve.com and Dancing Grounds.
