If you've been reading the blog a while, you'll recall me mentioning Live Unchained – an initiative to celebrate women artists across the African Diaspora and represent our collective and individual creativity. As they approach their 4th anniversary, they're calling us to help celebrate with a series of creative challenges dubbed 30 Unchained (#30unchained).
Every day for 30 days, there'll be a challenge for you to participate in, each inspired by creative women that have featured on the Live Unchained blog. I'm honoured to have inspired Day 19's challenge – to find, create or remix and image that answers the question: how do you express self-love?
The challenges are virtual (open to you wherever you are) and the celebrations will culminate on February 8th at a real, live party in DC (tickets here).
