MORiNGA ottawaService Provider offering Educational Resources, Community Building, Events, Advocacy
MORiNGA ottawa is a hub of intimate video creations and community-building content to celebrate intersectional identities amongst our Black communities.
#moringaottawa showcases intimate stories through music, instrument, spoken word, live arts, acting and comedy. We aim to be a hub of creativity from and for our Black visionaries, creatives and more in the national capital region. This project is our community’s resolve to insert the stories and individual identities of Black canadians in the capital of Canada, a city where the erasure of Blackness has left us disjointed, disconnected and demotivated.
MORiNGA is to
-give serenity, sanctuary
-the celebration of representation & intersectional identities
-inter-bonding, intra-bridging, solidarity, healing
-a restoration of decolonized history, knowledge, ancestry and heritage
-and a renewed prosperity and hope for our grown folx, youth and the ancestors who came before us.
