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. Curated and hosted by Ashara Ekundayo.
READINGS WITH AYA DE LEON AND KWAN BOOTH (MUSIC BY TBD)

You have a daughter. You are someone’s daughter. You love someone’s daughter.
You feel proud, confident, lost, angry, optimistic, terrified, and inspired by the world our girls are growing up in today. You want her to be safe. You want her to be happy. You want her to believe in herself. You want her to make a difference. Because of this, you have found yourself here, amongst friends. You have made the choice to join us as we assert the amazing boldness of girlhood.
