Triumph for Trayvon and adé PROJECT launch party, Feb. 26

Press release from adé PROJECT:


“If we do what we are called to do, curate events and conversations that lead to actions that lead to decisions about how we should and would live, we will win.”

– Patrisse Khan-Cullors, Co-Founder, Black Lives Matter

In honor of both Black History Month and the black experience, the work of adé PROJECT will launch by being in celebration and taking a moment to remember and reflect. Toward history, art is our response. We acknowledge and honor the innovators, educators, leaders, artists, musicians, engineers, teachers, preachers, mothers, fathers, daughters and sons that came before us. We seek to be the living manifestation of our ancestors dreams by liberating ourselves from anger, and centering our own happiness and joy. We take responsibility for knowing our own history, and learn from lessons of the past. ART IS OUR RESPONSE. So, we take a moment to listen. We take a moment to just BE. We take a moment to envision a community, and world beyond the ties of brutality, violence, and hate. We take a moment to be with one another, and celebrate who we are and the power we have to create + design our futures. We take a moment, because we deserve a moment. We will TRIUMPH FOR TRAYVON.
