Artist Salon with kei slaughter and ChE
October 23 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Wednesday, October 23, 2019, 6:30pm at A Studio in the Woods, join us for a potluck and to learn more about our newest Adaptations Residents kei slaughter and ChE.
While in residence, kei slaughter and ChE will work on “The People Can Fly,” a land-responsive performance ritual rooted in Queer Afro-Indigenous cultural strategies to address issues of climate gentrification, environmental racism, and land displacement for communities most impacted by climate adaptations. kei slaughter is an interdisciplinary performing artist, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and music therapist. Born and raised in New Orleans, they believe in the power of music to carry ancestral medicine, conjure freedom, and activate sustainable joy. ChE is a proudly Queer, Gender-expansive Afro-Indigenous artist-healer, educator, and movement organizer. They weave ancestral ritual, liberatory facilitation, and socially-engaged artmaking to transform systems of oppression and conjure expansive worlds of Freedom!
ChE and kei invite guests to bring an altar item for their ancestral altar. They will be able to take it home with them at the end of the evening.
This is a potluck, we will provide the main dish but ask that everyone pitch in a little something – drinks, salad, appetizer, dessert… The event is free, but please RSVP here.
