Help Fund a Black, Non-Binary Artist and Clown Create Art and Self-Employ!!!!

Hi Friends, I hope you are finding reasons to laugh and smile during these difficult times of Covid, Elections and the treatment of Black People. 

I am reaching out to you because money is really tight right now and I want to try to use all my resources and ask for help. I am trying my best to stay creative during these difficult times and because everything is now remote and probably will continue to for a while, I need to acquire equipment for my production company.  I am now taking control of my creative future and producing my own work.

I’m black and angry about the terrible things that are happening in our world right now. And I know I must use my anger in a positive way. Seeing well known clowns such as Bert William, Harpo Marx and Charlie Chaplin certainly inspired the form in which I express myself, but it’s not who I am. I’m learning that I am so much more. I now need the resources to further explore, learn and create for myself, my clown and the black community.

Through movement I want to explore the different ways you can use it as a mode to tell stories, connect to humanity and critique the issues of the world. I have a lot of questions, experiences and untold black stories that I need and want to explore through my art. 

As a storyteller I have a responsibility that I willingly and fully accept. To tell the true stories of my ancestors and use all the tools and resources of my time to do so. 

Through the concept of vaudeville I hope to travel around the world but for right now NYC to neighborhoods that don't have access to theater especially during these times. I want to give hope, an artist outlet and a chance for people to see a black clown. And of course I want people to smile and laugh again.
