The Sankofa Residency is a multi-phase project rooted in the history of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, and an Afrofuturist imagining of Bed-Stuy moving forward. Inspired by the Ghanian concept of Sankofa—looking backward in order to move forward—artist Kendra J. Ross and community members are using research, oral history, and collaborative imagining to facilitate a plan for local residents, businesses, and stakeholders to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic in a place of healing, thriving, and progress. The project will culminate in a series of interdisciplinary, immersive dance experiences, taking place on site at local partnering businesses and organizations. Join Kendra at The LP to learn more about the project.
