The Anthems is a music podcast started by my best friend and I in 2018. As music lovers we wanted a platform to discuss the songs giving us life and serving as a soundtrack for the moment we’re in. Together we plan, record, edit, produce and distribute to our small (but growing) listenership.
In 2018, I collaborated with a friend to write, illustrate and release fuck zine. fuck zine exists at the intersection of pleasure, fabulousness and give no fucksness. The release of the zine was celebrated with a conceptual event of the same theme. We created an ‘intentionally sexy space’ complete with a cuddle corner and erotica. Our second edition will be released in 2019.
Seat at the Table
Seat at the Table was my curatorial debut in 2018. Inspired by Solange’s 2017 album release, I wanted to explore A Seat at the Table, as a piece of literature and explore the albums deployment of words in service of culture and healing.
I collaborated with a Dutch poet Smita James and Verso (a live literary event in Amsterdam). My vision + her network = golden. We commissioned work from artists of all varieties and had the event in February of 2018. It was a huge success, drawing a crowd larger and more diverse than the bi-monthly event normally attracts.
