I was introduced to Lance by the wonderful Kate and Emma of The Magic Project. They invited us to speak on a public panel discussion about some of the challenges of being a Black male in Halifax. I was re-introduced to Lance as aquakultre shortly after, when he performed as part of the event. I was blown away by his presence as a performer his voice and his ability to make music that feels commercial yet raw enough that the streets will still f*ck with it. With a major co-sign from CBC, when he was selected as the winner of Searchlight 2018, he'll get a chance to share his voice with a much larger audience. Follow the drip!
This week on Changing the Narrative we talk about our FIRST artist meet-up and welcome the lovely family behind KeiKaiKoa to the podcast to talk about their experiences with bullying, and what we can do to change the narrative.
Ray is an artist in my community who deeply intrigues me. I reached out to her a few months back after being blown away by her makeup posts on Instagram. I wanted to find out a little more about her and what motivates her as artist.
