Jos is a filmmaker, traditional storyteller, and dancer who re-crafts traditional tales to address contemporary issues in communities. Each summer she organizes Stories in Service Day of Neighborhood Storytelling, in which four teams of storytellers share with four neighborhoods. Jos also founded an organization, GriotWorks, which works with filmmakers and storytellers to reclaim traditional cultural practices as a form of resistance and community building. Jos challenges racism by elevating heritage and strengthening cultural identities and creating platforms for African American stories, traditions, and culture to be learned and celebrated. Her goal is to use the work she creates as a vehicle for healing, education, and bridging gaps between communities, generations, and cultures.

DE-CODED: Art + Tech for Social Change

Leeway Foundation hosts the May Live Culture event at PhillyCAM! Live Culture is an open house and live TV production that happens on the first Friday of every month, curated by different arts and culture organizations. Since it’s Philly Tech Week, we’re focusing on local artists who utilize new media and technology to build alternate landscapes at the intersections of art and social change. Featuring presentations and conversations with poet and digital artist Andrea Walls (ACG ’14) and independent filmmaker M. Asli Dukan (ACG ’16, ’14, LTA ’16), we'll explore and answer questions like, How has technology enabled you to express an idea that couldn't have been conveyed otherwise? What conversations aren't happening in the space of creative technology?
