It is a #hobby at the moment and for the foreseeable future, but I am aware that #music - and arts more in general - can also become a form of #culturalresistance against #injustice, #unfairness, #oppression 🎼🎶 #cultural #resistance 🎶🎼

Resistance isn’t just physical. It can be spiritual and cultural. Henryk Ross, at the risk of death, did something heroic. He documented life under Nazi oppression so he could tell the world later. He did it with a camera. That’s resistance.

The personal is political.
This account is meant to uplift and empower my personal creations and ambitions as well as support that of other radical black and brown creatives in the struggle for collective liberation.

Hip Hop is much older than 45 years old. Hip Hop did not start in New York, for it is rooted in African culture. This is an example of a cypher. 
For over 500 years the Batuka (spoken word poetry/rapping, singing, call and response, drumming on thighs as drums were banned, and dance) was outlawed by the Portuguese oppressors and colonizers in Cabo Verde.

However, the culture was kept alive by woman that practiced in secrecy and by those whom escaped slavery on the island of Santiago. After independence in 1975, Cape Verdean’s could finally once again openly express their African cultural identity, without fear of persecution. 
This is a video I shot of good sister @marcydepina joining a “tereru” (batuka cypher) in Tarrafal

Spent the day with Ship to Gaza at Gothenburg Book fair 🇵🇸 talked a lot about Palestine and our mission, bought some books, ran into some friends and ended with a beer and nice company 🍻 The best things was to participate in a staged interrogation arranged by Reporters without borders, blindfolded, handcuffed and headphones to cancel out natural senses. It was extremely strong and such a good way to get an idea of what many journalist and others experience in jail in horrible conditions. All respect to the work they do ✊ Tomorrow will be a musical day and Sunday I'll be back and then I will go listen to and get to interview Kenyan spoken word artist and activist Ken 'Mufasa' Kibet - stay posted for updates! #excited #gothenburgbookfair #bokmässan2018 #svenskamässan #bokochbibliotek #aktivism #activism #culturalresistance #shiptogaza #shiptogazasweden #shiptogazasverige #reporterswithoutborders

We call this the Black Cultural Activism Map to honour the legacies of political blackness from which we have grown. We wish to be inclusive of black, brown and diasporic peoples. We recognise that our work is part of an ongoing conversation.

Proud to say I spent most of August editing a fanzine for AFROPUNK and working with some amazing creatives. Our ‘People.Art.Resistance’ zine presents some of the most exciting emerging black artists and poets in the UK. Many have taken the opportunity to explore the black cultural archives of @tate_britain and @198_cal and created pieces in response to the experience. 
We’re celebrating with a week long exhibition and a launch party tonight (Monday 6.30-9pm). Come along and check out the gallery exhibition, meet the artists and get your personalised copy of the zine. See ya there!

LAUNCH PARTY: Mon. 3rd Sept. 2018

Artsakh may be a frozen conflict zone, but they know that building the military is not the only way to strengthen their country. 
In Togh village, locals and diasporans collaborated to build an art school where kids from the village and surrounding areas come to learn painting, rug making, music, theater, and a variety of other arts. We were shown around by the piano teacher, as well as Artur, one of the students who recieved a full merit scholarship to go to a UNESCO recognized acting school in Yerevan this fall. 
This project is truly hopeful, giving local children the power to join Artsakh'a non-violent resistance through their creation.

I had the honor of helping @artkungfu with the creation of this community mural. We finished it last week at the 2nd Ward. 
It is more than a pretty mural for the community and visitors. It is a reminder, of who have been living in the barrio for many, many years already. 
It was a really interesting week we had during the creation of this mural. We ate a lot of tacos. We witnessed protests against JeffSessions dinner visit at el tiempo, received the thanks of some people from the community already and enjoyed a spontaneous party at the place while painting. 🔥🙏🏽🔥👁🔥❤️🔥🎉🔥🌽🔥

Oh our beautiful Dabke...
It feeds us,
Rooted in fertility rites, the growth and strength of plants, nature, living beings.
To protect from evil forces
The same can still be said today.
Strength against occupation, and all the oppressions that can come upon us, collectively and individually.
The joyous dance uplifts and connects us,
A warming solidarity with all our brothers and sisters we come to share the dances with.
We are all connected, we are all Palestinian.
Together we’ll dance away the pain and struggle, we’ll bring love and hope.
As we link arms and stomp together, we learn resistance, resilience and unity.

A picture of last nights extraordinary music evening, with improvisational jazzy sounds by Dirar Kalash and Cactus Truck, who came all the way from The Netherlands to Jenin camp.
Thanks for an inspiring evening!

Day One: SHARE MY STORY
(was actually yesterday but better late than never!) Steadfast Stitch began 3 years ago. After completing my degree & visiting Palestine it was time to return back to the world of employment! It couldnt have happened at the worst possible moment in time as we were in the middle of a SO CALLED RECESSION & PAYING OFF A FAKE DEFICIT. Interviews were gold dust & continually told either too much experience or not enough. Eventually landing the worst possible job ever in my life, I started to plan a new route of Self Employment. I was told time & time again by many careers advisers this was not possible but I thought F**K IT & F**K YOU I'm going for it!!! With help from friends & family I returned back to Palestine but this time to pursue knowledge & contacts under the banner CULTURE OF RESISTANCE, specifically 'TATREEZ' Palestinian cross stitch embroidery.

I had already decided that I would return to my childhood, picking up from where I had left off in art & handcrafts. Plus make use of the skills during my 13 years in Printing & my 4 year degree.

STEADFAST STITCH got of the ground. So far my story has been a continual learning curve, with its ups & downs. But so far NO REGRETS. Primarily I have been focused on helping others with their work for no profit. In return to simply work with threads of colour & share other people's stories of how even handcrafts are used in political life threatening battle grounds. 
I have continuously used VISUAL ARTS to get hard messages across to raise awareness via posters, banners & leaflets. But now my story has changed onto a different path. Tatreez will always remain at the heart of Steadfast Stitch & will continue to do so but its now time for me to incorporate my own adventure. Childhood dreams into HAND PRINTS & KNITS with Scotland in my other grasp. Both wondering where I & the World is heading.....

**Difficult moments for our country and Mother Nature. Keep the struggle, keep the faith** >>> What’s yours is yours, nobody can take it from you. It is yours, because you have loved it, you have worked  for it, because you have given,  you have invested time on it, because it has taught you, and made you mature. It's yours, because you wanted it, because you loved it so much that you even hated it, because it hurt, because you sweat it. Now your skin is harder,  you dont feel so naive and at the same time you lerned  to trust. You discovered friends who will continue  walking with you along the way, and in other cases, you have left people behind. It's yours because it makes you wise and that, nobody can take it away.

There are things that are not yours, things that you carry, things that weigh. Weights that have been carried centuries ago, others that grow day by day due to fears, dissatisfactions, anger and sadness. There are things that you carry, lumps full of shit that infect you, they rot you slowly inside, they make you sick, fuck up your mind and soul. They hurt you, you hurt back.

What is mine is mine, nobody can take it from me. There are things that I carry , and at times, I let it go when I feel like flying . ^ Thank you nature for so much ^ ** Experiences that change lives ** #petropresidente #natureconservation #gotothewild #rainforest #indigenous #cultureconservation #amazonas #spirituality #conectwithnature #letnatureriseupagain #culturalresistance #graffitigirl #naturegirl #feminism #likmi
