Description

Join us for the Inaugural event of the The Women of Color Advancing Peace, Security and Conflict Transformation (WCAPS) Art Forum with a night of art, conversation and contemplation. A screening of Taja Lindley’s short film, "This Ain’t A Eulogy: A Ritual for Re-Membering",2017 (10 mins) will be the foundation for a discussion between the artist and WCAPS founder, Ambassador Bonnie D. Jenkins, and an examination of the intersections of women, race, and dignity in our society.

Taja Lindley’s work draws parallels between discarded materials and the violent treatment of Black people in the United States. People in the African Diaspora have a long history of repurposing, remixing, and transforming oppressive systems into valuable cultural practices.

The WCAPS Art Forum seeks to create a safe space to encourage new ways of understanding how issues of peace, security and conflict affect women of color globally, and bring more people into the discussion of these important issues.

Presented by Art to Zebras, New York University Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, and Women of Color Advancing Peace, Security and Conflict Transformation (WCAPs)
