We are getting geared up for the film screenings this evening! Starting with a brief talk at 7:00pm with Nicole Yip, the director of @luxscot, these screenings are not ones to miss. With video and moving image works from internationally celebrated artists in the Black and Caribbean diasporas, this is perhaps the first time these films will have been played in the region. We are proud to have these films on the NAGB grounds and can’t wait to share this extraordinary opportunity with you - and for FREE! Consider it our gift to you. . 🎥 🍿#nagb242 #teamNAGB #bahamas #thebahamas #caribbean #thecaribbean #diaspora #diasporaart #diasporafilm #caribbeandiaspora #blackdiaspora #movingimages #luxscotland #britishcouncilcaribbean #wesuffertoremain #johnakomfrah #albetawhittle #nicoleyip #difficultconversations #postcolonialism #windrush #politicalmeanderings #fionastheatre #thebahamas #nassau #postcolonial #artconnectsus #artsybae

Yesterday I stumbled upon a museum, dedicated to an artist I never heard of, Violeta Parra. She was the daughter of a farmer and music teacher. Her art pays homage to her upbringing, from her sewing onto potato sacks to her paper maché pieces. All part of her two messages in life, the human and the divine.
.
She was also an accomplished folk singer who not only revitalized the folk music scene but also establish a movement known as "La Nueva Cancion Chilena". My favorite song by her is also playing in the background, "Gracias a la Vida", which is Chile's most famous and most interpreted song. .
(instagram has blocked the post three times already because of the music so I guess you guys will have to hear it elsewhere)
.
Its crazy to think that someone who isn't here anymore can make a connection with me through the art and music she left behind. The things we make can transcend who and what we are to become something that speaks to all.
.
Thank you Violeta.

What an amazing privilege and joy to be one of the 7 @muvtalks speakers last night on the topic of ‘agents of change’. I was pretty nervous as my usual audience are much much younger but I was in the best company!! I loved getting to share the story behind @colourourstory and how it has transformed into a beautiful, creative and global movement with a global village of amazing people getting behind it.

And to all the other change makers out there... keep up the good fight. You are all so inspiring!! @muvtalks @charitytea_nz @thecommonbusiness @caliwoods_eco #cottonseed @colartmiles
