My Travel Story

by: Adriana Foreman Start Date: Dec 9, 2017 - End Date: Jan 21, 2018
Peace Family!

For those who don't know me, I am Adriana Foreman and I'm a creator and healer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My creative forms are mainly, but not limited to film, radio, and puppetry. 

I've recently been blessed with the opportunity to travel to Africa to work on a project with my partner in crime, Adja Gildersleve, who is an incredible interdisciplinary artist and healer based in Minneapolis. We previously collaborated on a short film titled Baptism that we shot, edited, and submitted to the Mnkino film festival. We received some great feedback and thought, why stop there? Why not dream big? That's when we thought: AFRICA!

On this trip, we will be traveling to Ghana. We would like to explore the concept of returning home by further examining our connection to water, ancestry, healing, and finding oneself.  We would like to incorporate these concepts into a film that involves puppetry and African folklore as well. Given the important history of Ghana, we thought it would the perfect place for this project. 

This project will allow Adja and I to stretch our creative minds and express ourselves in new ways.  For me, I would like to incorporate puppetry and African folklore while paying homage to ancestors, specifically my grandmother. On my own personal healing journey and the passing of my Grandmother, I have been driven to create and I would like to use this opportunity to honor her. 

Given this dope opportunity, the financial part plays a huge role in making this a smooth and stress free experience. We are looking to our community that we know and love, for support. Every cent donated would go toward funding this trip and supporting us financially while we will be creating this project in Africa. Any amount will help!
