Honey & Smoke began it's takeover of the @stayconnectedlausc instagram profile as part of a collaboration with the USC Keck School of Medicine from the month of May until August. We are creating bilingual digital content (English / Spanish) that aims to provide the East Los Angeles Latinx Community health resources as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will also create digital content that aims to empower, provide hope and uplift those in this community who have been personally affected by COVID-19. This project is in conjunction with the USC Stay Connected LA project that brings together a series of artists to create work in response to this moment. 


Make sure to follow @stayconnectedlausc on Instagram to check out our project.

ZEAL is getting ready to launch its Studio Incubator program for local Black artists in Los Angeles. I am currently the Interim Studio Director. Our artist studio is located in Inglewood and we are excited to host an artist in the space and for us to support their creative practice. 


We recently purchased some new furniture and I am SO looking forward to redecorating the space. However, we can use some $support in purchasing some tech equipment for the space (a desktop computer, camera and projector) for the artists in residence to use.
