Yeyo Arts Collective will support her travel to continue the creative practice she maintains. This is what she says about her work:
As an anthropologist and documentary filmmaker, I have always been interested in the non-tangible aspects of culture, such as love, faith, and spirits. My project in Nigeria, entitled "Footing" is about the spirit that remains after 400 years of physical change. Over the course of a few weeks, I hope to document the daily lives of women and girls as they learn about and practice traditional African faiths in the heart of Nigeria, Ile-Ife. Through photography and cinema verite vignettes, I hope to be able to capture the spirit of my ancestors stolen hundreds of years ago. I look forward to gallery viewings and discussions between Nigeria and America.
We will update our supporters on the journey and creative practice. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
