About The Sweetwater Sessions
This multi-sensory, multi-media series of creative arts practice engagements gives voice to the dramatic collaborative process between Artist, Spirit, tradition and community in the design of freedom narratives for contemporary culture. With an aim to intersect and possibly disrupt social constructs, “The Sweetwater Sessions” allow for a deeper exploration of femininity and liquidity in the creation of a lush identity celebrating Black people and Blackness.
