The Drum Major Project

 
 

50 Years Ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Junior was ASSASSINATED

We will remember and commemorate his legacy with a reenactment of the funeral procession, elements of which will be reinterpreted to speak to issues of today. Rachel Parish and Firehouse Productions, in collaboration with the King Center are producing this event in Atlanta on April 9th, 2018. 

There will be a series of visual art workshop in the lead up to the main event lead by Angela Davis Johnson, Zipporah Camille Thompson and myself, with support from the Atlanta Mayoral Office of Cultural Affairs.

For my part, I will help design a workshop to create signs that reference contemporary issues to accompany a series of "tableau vivant," that is vignettes of actors specifically in civil rights era costume, that will be placed along the route of the procession.

#3everyday is a public mourning

It's a look you in the eyes and acknowledge that I see you, rushing past, face averted. It's a raging why, what, how! It's crying out I'm sorry, that three women died of domestic violence today. Whether there's an audience or not, three perform everyday in October, throughout the city of Atlanta.

This project was led and created by Jessica Caldas to bring attention to the issue of gendered violence during domestic violence awareness month. I've been a part of the project since 2015. In 2017, I had the honor of participating in a third of the performances.

It Was So Much More than I realized

Hatch was like a graduate level Intro to Public Art, Community Projects and Creative Placemaking. Taught by C4 Atlanta, who laid out a framework for engaging with and across communities through art. The investment into this course, which seemed steep before the class,
