Details LUNA LOBA: Moons of Abundance part 1 "LUNA LOBA is a performance series that creates space to explore ritual through artistic practice. Performance art, video, spoken word/readings, sound/music, and performative installation. This series has been running for three consecutive years in Providence, RI, since 2016, with a hiatus in 2019. Each night features 12 artists across mediums and identities. The theme of these two next performance nights is ABUNDANCE. Let's reflect on the powers we have, rather than what we feel we might lack. Let’s embody the shift from deficit to abundance."

Excited to be a part of this new initiative!

"The City of Providence has awarded five artists to participate in a new pilot training in Artist Facilitation and Community Health Work followed by a three-month residency in a community based organization. Co-led by Providence’s  Department of Art, Culture + Tourism (ACT)  and  Healthy Communities Office , the  Creative Community Health Worker Fellowship  provides 70 hours of training under Dr. Dannie Ritchie, Director of  Community Health Innovations of Rhode Island  and three Artist-Facilitators,  Laura Brown-Lavoie ,  Vatic Kuumba  and  Valerie Tutson . This pilot program is designed to support artists to become  RI certified Community Health Workers , expanding the impact of the arts on addressing social determinants of health. This fellowship is an extension of the City’s  Sowing Place Initiative , generously funded by the  Kresge Foundation.
