Event Description

Curative Collective Conversation: djassi daCosta johnson

In this series, join us for in-depth interviews with the Curative Collective, a group of Women, Arts, and Social Change partners working at the intersection of food, art, and social change. From advocacy and social justice to healing and restorative self-care, this diverse collective serves communities throughout the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area. The Curative Collective is also working on NMWA’s exhibition, RECLAMATION: Recipes, Remedies, and Rituals to ensure that the exhibition incorporates local communities and their perspectives.

This week, we are joined by djassi daCosta johnson, a classically trained modern dancer, choreographer, photographer, filmmaker, designer, writer and doula. She’ll share more about her process in creating her work for RECLAMATION, her top #5WomenArtists that inspire her, and what she is working on now. This event will be livestreamed on NMWA’s Facebook page and at nmwa.org/livestream.

Women, Arts, and Social Change is a public programs initiative that highlights the power of women and the arts as catalysts for change.
