2016 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Kavindu “Kavi” Ade is a poet, activist, and arts educator of Afro & Indigenous Caribbean descent. Their work confronts the many manifestations of violence perpetuated against the Black-Trans-Queer body. Through poetry they navigate despair, rage, and grief, but also joy, wonder, and becoming. Using art as resistance they create transformative dialogue and space for healing communities that fall outside of the realms of whiteness, patriarchal power, and cis-heteronormativity.
