THE STORY:

Greetings!

Welcome to another sweet and unpredictable summer. 

For the past 6 months, me and 3 other performers have been toiling away at producing a transformative multimedia performance piece named "àjé". àjé is an Afro-sacred elemental energy which originates in mxnstrual blood and is rooted in the rhythms of Yòrúba mythoherstory. 

This year, àjé producer and performer, adé, won Durham's annual Ella Fountain Pratt Foundation Emergung Artist Award. $1500 + affirmation has helped this project go a long way and we are inviting you to help us go farther!

We want to match the award grant and raise $1500 to use towards rounding out our production costs, venue/community arts donation, mxnstrual health wkshps for Black youth, and artist compensation.

YES! Support local Black-led and -centered multimedia art!

Donate this amount and we will send you: 

$20 - pack of àjé postcards

$50 - pack of àjé postcards + holding demons in small jars book

$100 - pack of àjé postcards + holding demons in small jars book + mini care pack 

(please make sure you leave your address if you do not live in Durham, NC.)
