AWAKENING: MOTION, the 6th annual series to celebrate dignity through mobility, will bring more artists and events together than ever before - stay tuned for an announcement of the full event calendar on Friday, April 6.   

Below is a look into some of the amazing projects + people that are creating AWAKENING: MOTION and help make Charleston, SC a beautiful place to be.
The Upper Peninsula Community Council, made up of representatives from non-profits, neighborhood association presidents, small business owners, religious leaders, and artists have met monthly over the last six months to work on a map that highlights historic sites, community resources, and areas of interest. 

Created by a group of stakeholders in the Upper Peninsula, this map will be for everyone that lives, works, or visits the area to use to become better connected. Empowering those in the Upper Peninsula is important to preserving culture, history, and control in an area that is rapidly changing.

INTRODUCING OUR OFFICIAL MOTION POSTER IMAGE, a digital collage from a community photoshoot at REDUX by Afrofuturist artist Dogon Krigga.

ABOUT DOGON KRIGGA:
Dogon Krigga began making digital art with a distinct purpose. As a self-trained artist raised and operating in Columbia, SC, Dogon set out to provide unique and original designs for independent businesses and recording artists.

Seeking an outlet to further express their ideas, Dogon launched their fine art career in 2012. The visionary aspect of their creations are an amalgamation of culture and esoteric reference through Afrofuturism, with digital and cut and paste collage as a medium. They utilize their particular sense of synesthesia to transmute sound into an image that invokes a sense of wonder and reflection on the human being’s cosmic, aboriginal, and omni-dimensional nature. Raising black vibrations through visual art is the purpose.
