Experiments in Joy [An Invitation]

 

We invite you to join Obsidian Digital in our newest web venture, an extension of the ongoing collaborative creative-critical arts practice announced by the Call & Response Ensemble at Antioch College in 2014 and featured in Obsidian’s fall 2015 special issue. We’re excited to extend that work by opening up this collaborative space for Experiments in Joy by artists of the African Diaspora and allies. These Experiments in Joy have just a few rules:

  1. Tell the truth
  2. Make something new
  3. Invite someone in
  4. Document
  5. Repeat

Written, visual, performative, and all other genre of creativity are welcome. We hope you will contribute your reflections and artworks toward shared joy and collaborative creation of the worlds we inhabit—and the worlds that inhabit us—with Obsidian as we conduct these Experiments in Joy.
