The Embodying the Present Moment Writing Project

Following our “Embodying the Present Moment” Performance Workshop with Sharon Bridgforth and Dr. Omi Osun Joni L. Jones, we continued to gather in community to create art that was inspired by or grew out of the performance workshop. Like the performance workshop itself, these pieces explore vulnerability, life challenges, embodied stories, family history, and intention.
