2016 Art and Change Grant – Vashti DuBois

Vashti will produce a catalogue and documentary about The Colored Girls Museum, a space she created in her home that honors the stories and experiences of women and girls of color. The rooms in her house have been converted into installations where artists from the community tell different stories about the ordinary and extraordinary women of color in their lives. The museum is a staging ground for community engagement, education, celebration, and the advancement of civic and cultural pride. Vashti wants to preserve the museum and it’s impact through the catalogue and documentary.

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?
