A few words about your artistic journey

When I started out as a traveling thespian, I was wild with dreams of changing the world with the gospel of nonviolence. The older I grow, the more I discover my place in the web of prophetic artists who dare to dream about Utopias for African peoples all over the world.

How long have you been an artist ?

I’ve been an artist for about 8 years.

Why did you apply for this grant ? How will the grant support you ?

This grant will help me hire the right people to create a professional podcast that documents rich African oral tradition while also entertaining the world.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

To start a podcast dedicated to the African oral folktale experience and to publish at least one folktale that celebrates African survivalism.
