Jaclyn Bowie (b. 1989, High Point, NC) develops personal mythologies with collaborators and translates them as interdisciplinary works including performance, video, installation and sculpture. She currently lives and participates in the politically active community of Durham, North Carolina.

"I'm a visual artist with two main focuses which I work to combine: facilitating creative collaboration and making art you can touch and interact with." -Jaclyn Bowie

Lara Americo / Comic Girl Coffee:
North Carolina has been in the news this year for all of the wrong reasons. Activist/songwriter Lara Americo has been speaking -- and singing -- about this discrimination. Today, she’s releasing her first full-length album, She/They about her experiences as a transgender woman of color living in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Americo played all of the instruments on the album and recorded herself in her closet. She’s a self-taught musician who learned how to play the flute, mandolin, guitar, bass and drums. She’s played these instruments in venues along the East Coast and is hoping the release of her first album will showcase her talents and her message of equality and equity for all.

Americo has been the voice of the ACLU campaign and Change.org this summer, when House Bill 2 passed in the North Carolina General Assembly. She has been featured in The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, and on Democracy Now!
