Your creative practice is a promise towards the values that you want to see in the world.
In sharing the story behind Black Feast, a “culinary event that celebrates Black artists and writers through food,” Salimatu and Annika also share lessons about how to anchor your creative practice in your values and the communities you serve. They offer tender reminders for when we’re creating work we believe in: Take care of ourselves and each other. Be unafraid to rethink frameworks that don’t serve you. And overcome your fear of rejection. Because if you believe in it, so many people need the work that is near and dear to your heart to exist in the world.
