My intention for CRAFTING COMMUNITY: Africa to America is to use pottery making as a tool to celebrate and connect a diverse demographic of Black women. The project encompassed studying under female Master Potters in Ghana West Africa and building upon those lessons to curate unifying artistic experiences for Black women in my hometown. A more detailed project summary is provided HERE.
CRAFTING COMMUNITY is the product of my desire to foster social connections through art. Like many artists, I believe in the ability of art to heal, empower, and catalyze personal transformation. My long-term aspiration is for CRAFTING COMMUNITY to evolve into a broader movement for creative social change in the future.
