The QTBIPOC Performing Artist Hive envisions and ignites a multi-modal/multi-dimensional thriving ecosystem of QTBIPOC performing artists through nurturing relationships, sharing resources, and building power among Black, Indigenous, queer and trans artists of color on unceded Ohlone land ( San Francisco Bay Area).
We intend to create spaces that invite and center - dialogue, generative dissonance, embodied practices, slowing down, rest, re-connection with the earth and its local Indigenous stewards, bending time, dreaming, honing intuition and imagination, seeing the stars.
Together we find wholeness, weave interdependence, learn how to heal. We create access / cultural equity and our own representation as we develop the infrastructure to carry our werq forward long-term. We practice mutuality and accountability.
This statement too will change as leadership circulates and evolves. We acknowledge that the intelligence and strength of our collective are greater than any one of its parts, and those attributes come from alchemizing our respective gifts through and beyond the intersections of our differences / ancestral lineages.
