2021 Creative Action Fund | May We Find Ourselves

May We Find Ourselves is a body of visual art with a web database tracing our ancestry and history to earlier times. Made collectively by documenting cultural sayings, community storytelling, and or traditions we receive at home, this is an interactive art piece that centers on the tradition of culture, language, and art. This is for all of the people in diverging directions across the Atlantic Ocean, retracing our journeys to show our strength and resiliency.
