With tracks from Solange such as, 'Cranes In The Sky', 'Don't Touch My Hair', and Lauryn Hill's 'Black Rage' and 'Selah' in mind Creative Corner Live are proud to present 'Black Orchids'.
Creative Corner Live's founder, host and poet "Jumi" will be facilitating this workshop alongside Barbican Young Poet Amina Jama.
In celebration of black history month 'Black Orchids' is a workshop specifically for black women, exploring issues that we face everyday that underpins how we move through society and the world.
We will be exploring the 'Black British woman'; the stereotypes and expectations of her through various mediums including poetry, art and photography.
'Black Orchids' sets out to give the black woman a voice, to discuss the discourse that often comes with the black woman and to cultivate new ideologies that highlight the beautiful orchids we are.
This workshop will give us the opportunity to collectively learn, be empowered and strengthen ties within our community.
This is for the creatives & the "I'm not a creative" types.
