30 Unchained: 30 Creative Women from Across the Diaspora Inspire Live Unchained’s Interactive Anniversary Challenge

30 Days Live Unchained


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).

Find out more about 30 Unchained via the video below (click here for video if reading via RSS) and don't forget to check out all the inspiring, creative women inspiring the challenges.
