For Arts Sake, We peeled back our eyelids to reveal windowpanes of our souls
Unrehearsed songs of our solemn, Melodies of our origin, Laced with lyrics of our future selves, The tempo for opportunities to Jam once more, The beauty were the acceptance, While viewing rare masterpieces of art at first glance, Time well spent for the sake of the true artist. (Oneself)

The last Wednesday of every month since April has been dedicated to meeting community members and partners in preparation for the upcoming performances by Congolese choreographer Faustin Linyekula. At our June meeting, one of our partners contributed this poem after our session using one of Faustin’s creative mantras, “ My name is ___ and I have a story.”
This Wednesday, for our July meeting we will be honoring the late Sekou Sundiata’s creative research by asking the question, “When did I first became aware of my role as a citizen, a participant in a larger community, and that I had a stake in some grand communal, national, or international project?”
I will post more observations on Thursday. I invite you to answer either one or both of these questions and for us to share in discussion.
