HISTORY OF SPIRITUAL IS POLITICAL

Spiritual is Political was born in 2021 out of a specific historical time when the world’s spiritual consciousness and the reality of global colonial political landscapes were in reckoning. Coming out of a deep reflection on how to move consciousness to create a more just world we want to see, feel, and believe, Spiritual is Political was born. The community we began with came out of a eight year period of organizing, creating, and sharing the work of In Solidarity (formerly Women of Color in Solidarity),  building a community of over 25k people. The artists, creators, and community members are within the spirit of Spiritual is Political and they are a part of our history.

CURATION ARTIST

CHEYENNE WYZZARD-JONES

A spider to many webs, Cheyenne makes it her mission to connect the stories of the erased throughout the world. She comes from a political art background through her work as Executive Director of movement organization In Solidarity. The arts have been a part of her life since she was a child, ranging from professional theatre, dance companies, to film director and producer. Cheyenne loves capturing conversations, the imagination, and the ways history cycles itself in our culture, language, clothing, and political beliefs. Their politic is one that centers the narratives, experiences, and visions of Blackness beyond a monolith.

 

As Curation Artist they center the breadth of Black Indigenous Queer Technologies. Technologies that disrupt white dominant concepts of time, gender, borders, and extreme systems of punishment that have altered a natural order. She is inspired by the anti-space and the way art is a medium of archival storytelling, a means to not only shift culture but change consciousness.

 

Cheyenne has worked alongside 5th Avenue Theatre, Our Place Theatre, Democracy Now!, Consortium for Gender Security & Human Rights, ACLU, and The New School, to name a few. Their work has been featured on TEDx, The Void Academy, CRWN Magazine, Medium Magazine, Cambridge Arts Council, and The Queens Museum.
