The Moments Project

THE PHASES

Moments consists of 5 phases: Afrocentric artistic experiences that explore the unique perspective of Black women who live in the United States as African immigrants. It is an experimental collaboration of artistic expressions by creatives of color that explore this unique black perspective with contemporary African dance at the forefront through Film, Art, Photo, and on the Stage. 

Phase 1 

Interference explores the conflict between diaspora groups and childhood experiences. Interference was sponsored by Houston in Action and Art2Action as part of the #Htownvotes initiative. It focused on using art to encourage communities of color to participate in the 2020 elections.
