2021 Maafa Artist Talk, Episode 2

Ashé Cultural Arts Center
Getting there
1712 Oretha C Haley Blvd, New Orleans, LA

We're back with another season of Maafa Exhibit Artist Talks! The 2021 Maafa Exhibit — Polyrhythmic: The Movement of Our People — is a celebration of the polyrhythms and dances of Africa and the Diaspora. Artists were invited to consider the following questions: How is dance cultural and/or spiritual? How does one communicate through dance or movement? How does dance touch your soul? Hear from five of the Maafa Exhibit featured artists — Journey Allen, Gason Ayisyin, Eric Waters, Alina Allen, and Sean Clark — as they talk about the significance of their featured pieces, their artistic process, and their exploration of the importance of dance and movement for the healing and liberation of the African Diaspora.
