Collaborations include:

  • Beautiful Constellations with Michelle King and Kim Moses was born out of a gathering of hearts to hold the questions: Why healing? Why now? What needs to be healed?

Through the Climate Healing Incubator funded by the Heinz Endowments *thank you*, we gathered, broke bread, had thought experiments, and offered a place for others to share their thoughts about healing by sharing our journey.

This manifested as a visual mapping called Beautiful Constellations Mapping and an open invitation for others to explore, offer their contribution in connecting the pieces, and leave their thoughts on healing in journals. This piece was exhibited at SPACE gallery in downtown Pittsburgh in the We Are the Global Majority DECOLONIZING SPACE exhibition curated by the #notwhite collective.
