Painted Bride Art Center "Power to the Prompt" lead artists TS Hawkins (Community Capital: an Afrofuturism South Philly Walking Experience), Terrell Halsey & Nina Elizabeth "Lyrispect" Ball (Call Home), and Mehgan Abdel-Moneim (Heard That!) join Carlos (Os) Roa for a conversation about their artistic process!
About the Community Capital: We speak ourselves into existence. But, what happens when others of the world silence your tones to cacophony their worth? Originally commissioned as part of the Painted Bride Art’s Center “Power to the Prompt" conversation, Community Capital: an Afrofuturism South Philly Walking Experience, curated and written by TS Hawkins & Lois Moses, illuminates an intersectional poetic expedition of sound and unearthing through the streets of South Philadelphia. Letting ancestors guide permeable possibilities, this (self-guided) trek opens multiple dimensions of storytelling that ignite the expansion of mind, body, and spirit! Journeying fixed and beyond, participants will have the opportunity to connect with intergenerational voices searching for an equitable community one neighborhood at a time!
