Artists As First Responders: “Cultural Doula” Strategies In Survival & Joy
Artists respond at the edges of birth and death. This multimedia storytelling circle centers the embodied experiences of artists rescuing, making, and stewarding creative pursuits on the frontline edges of catastrophe and celebration—as in hurricane, as in border patrol, as in right to choose, as in ring shout! Join four “culture-doulas” who will share strategies and tactics for survival and regeneration through images, songs and words. With: Ashara Ekundayo, Independent curator, author of the upcoming Artist As First Responder; Tara Trudell, multimedia artist, photographer, poet, organizer; Christa Bell, multimedia artist, co-curator of HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN?; Angela Wellman, trombonist, scholar, educator, founder, Oakland Public Conservatory of Music.
