SPIRITHOUSE USES ART AND MEDIA TO SUPPORT THE EMPOWERMENT AND TRANSFORMATION OF COMMUNITIES MOST AFFECTED BY RACISM, POVERTY, GENDER DISCRIMINATION AND THE SCHOOL TO PRISON PIPELINE.
SpiritHouse is a Durham, NC based cultural organizing collective that links community organizers and artists with people at the grassroots. We strive for a better future, justice and transformation by fighting to eliminate racism, poverty, and gender discrimination. As artists, healers, teachers, experimenters, listeners and learners we work to bring about meaningful and positive change for people at all levels of life.
1. We believe that another world is possible, and that every person has the potential to transform their community and our world from where they stand.
2. We believe the south African principle of Ubuntu, "I am because we are," holds us accountable to our community and all its members.
3. We believe that all grassroots communities (georgraphy and identity) have the innate ability to determmine their own divine destiny.
