Art-ivismes of Africa and Diasporas

Good afternoon,
Dear Sweet Souls,

I am an independent journalist and decolonizing-cultural activist | curator. I have co-founded the Collectif Warrior Poets and published the book in Fresh together with Sarah Demart ‘Create in Postcolony 2010-15. Belgo-Congolese voices and dissidences’ (Ed. BOZAR/Africalia, 2016). I write write, among others, for Café Congo.

I am looking for a quiet room | studio at the sea or in the countryside to write a new projet on Art-ivismes of Africa and Diasporas. I would like to develop a reflection on how to create an open space for meeting and dialogue around the relationship between art and activism, especially politics. I would like to testimony how contemporary artists and its diasporas, reclaim the resistance and political struggles from yesterday to today.

The mediums of music (jam), visual (photos, cinema, videos), poetics (slam, urban expressions) will be privileged to question a youth in search of emancipation and existential renewal.

Propositions artistiques en échange de la résidence (oeuvres, cours, ateliers, dîner, concert...) : I can offer a writing coaching | workshop, a session of African literature, a poem or an article.
Description du lieu recherché (nature, urbain, autre) : I am a recent transplanted heart and am looking for a quiet room | studio at the sea or in the countryside. I am based in Brussels and ideally could take the train to the neighboring countries of Belgium (France, Italy, Switzerland, ...)
Quels sont vos projets de résidence ? : - Mapping Afro artists & diasporas - selecting books and extracts - writing an article - creating a nomadic cultural project on Art-ivismes around the world (Brussels - Paris - Amsterdam - Berlin - Lisboa - Dakar - Miami - Port-au-Prince)

Description du type d’espace de travail souhaité (bureau, atelier, salle de répétition…) : A quiet room | studio with the possibility to cook.

    Hey there, I am Marion, Parisian by heart who tries to balance an ongoing writing project and the desire to keep living in and enjoying Paris. I started writing this book (which is a dystopia inspired by writers such as Chuck Palahniuk and Warren Ellis) on november 2017 and I am about half of it. I chose to dedicate my time and energy to this project (I am a former international relations analyst), until it is possible, and that's why I am looking for a host. If you are one of them, let's talk 🙂 and thanks in advance for your support! Cheers

    Bonjour à tous et merci pour cette magnifique initiative ! Je suis une artiste polyvalente : comédienne, dessinatrice, écrivaine. En ce moment j'ai besoin de me concentrer sur l'écriture de mon premier ouvrage et pour ce faire je cherche un lieu au calme, dans la nature et entouré de personnes qui ont envie d'un échange sain et sincère ! Loin des bruits de la ville et des paroles futiles !
