A Message From The Artistic Director of The Watah School – d’bi.young anitafrika

d'bi @ mikey smith poster

I want to create…Love

I want to create…Life

I want to experience the deep and profound texture of…Living

these are challenging times…like the times before and the times ahead…

I do not want to pretend otherwise

I am not an island

I am human

let’s create art & love & life together with over 36 artists presenting over 33 new works of art

at the mikey smith raw works festival

mikey smith was stoned to death

because he choose to experience his life

his perspective

his love for freedom

what are you willing to die for?

see you at the festival!
