Jaipur jootis are as characteristic of the city as those multi-hued umbrellas that inspired the last Jaipur video we posted, but how would shoes, no matter how shiny, figure into a barefoot dancing video? @namitaunnmuktaa
resolved this problem, in her usual straightforward manner, by actual convincing a Jaipur shoe shop to let us in to, rather inconcievably, dance amidst their wares. We were politely kicked out way sooner than we would have liked, but hey, better a brief run at this than nothing at all!

Do you love everything minimal? If subtlety is what you veer toward, you could pick artworks that are black and white or pieces that are monochromatic. Whether it is using black and white photographs, charcoal drawings, or black and white paintings, these could give your home a chic look. To further reinforce the uniformity, you could choose black frames.
When hanging art in your home, don't hang pieces too far apart from each other. Approximately two inches (sometimes less) on either side and below and above is enough space.
・・・ Aditi Shah writes, "6 Times Desi Women Reclaimed Public Spaces As Their Own"
In the aftermath of a mass molestation incident in Bengaluru which was followed by many insensitive and sexist comments from politicians, hundreds of people took to the streets in about thirty cities across India. The #IWillGoOut
protests’ reach was wide as the movement saw people not only from metropolitan cities, but also from smaller ones. The movement advocated for women’s right to go out whenever they want without having to face harassment.
Sexual harassment is pervasive. It does not solely happen in one kind of a place or with one kind of a woman. The danger lies in its ability to occur at any time and anywhere as the perpetrator is more often than not somebody the victim knows. In compliance with the myth that women are only harassed in public spaces, we are made to believe that policing our behaviour will guarantee safety.
Normalising the idea that women too can loiter or wander about streets and outside shops, allows us to reclaim these spaces. By reclaiming them, we assert that women are also part of the society and have their own rights to public spaces. Check out the list of women-led projects and campaigns that are advocating for our rights to mobility and freedom by clicking on the link on Feminism in India.

For a statement-making living room, hand a massive photograph behind your sofa and frame it with two pendant lights. The added dimension will make your room unforgettable.
"welcome to Zwelinzima Hlazo village, a place I call home" ™2018 ©luxolowitvoet
A photograph of my cousin brother Moeketsi busy on his phone whilst standing in front of this iconic signage which stands when entering Nyanga East, the second oldest township in Cape Town. This area is named in commemoration of Zwelinzima, a former ANC official member that was gunned down outside of his home here in Nyanga. It's saddens that this accident happened 19 years ago and in reality Nyanga is infamous for being the murder capital of South Africa. A community built from informal settlements after people fled Langa when it became too full during the late 40's. Officially brick homes were built in 1955 by the apartheid regime five years after the group areas act was already in place. This is the place I call home.

I will be closed for Spiritual Maintenance through July 28, 2018.
Current clients and gift certificate holders will be contacted directly for priority scheduling opportunities.
So what is "Spiritual Maintenance?" It is the time I take to be intentional about my "WHOLE-self-Care." I unplug. I reconnect. I fast. I pray. I dance. I run. I recharge. I eat. I get my sexy back. I recharge my shrine. ...and anything else that feeds/restores me to my highest self.
Back in graduate school I started with a long weekend. The focus was just getting away to rest and study. It was actually a difficult thing to adjust into. But by the 3rd day, I always came out 10000% refreshed and renewed. My long term goal is to NOT work during the full months of July and December. Those are actually the slower cycles in my business and the months that my personal life RAMPS all the way up.
I am not quite really for a full month off of work but I am working towards it.Each time I do this it gets easier and easier. Each time I take a little more into my "normal" routine until one day this will be my new "normal." For tips on setting a personalized self-care routine, inbox me. I will return all messages after 7/28/2018.

In Ooty, a trio converted a discarded toilet into an art gallery- Gallery OneTwo and, with that, reminds the public and the govt to take care of forgotten public spaces. The inspiration for the gallery has come from the yen to reclaim underutilised resources and save the planet. Check it out:
Happy Indigenous Peoples Day 👌
People sometimes wonder why I am so passionate about reclaiming my culture and redefining what it means to be a woman who is Woodsland Cree First Nations. My reason is that 22 years ago, my people were prohibited of practicing their culture. The Canadian government attempted genocide with our Indigenous/First Nations people through residential schools and the 60's scoop, where millions of children were stripped away from their families and brought into a place where they were no longer able to speak their native tongue, speak to their siblings, or practice their culture. Many endured years of abuse and trauma. Our people have years of generational trauma that we are trying to heal from due to these colonial systems.
So no, I will not stop reclamining who I am or stop reminding people of who Indigenous people really are. We are sacred. We are healing. We belong here. We are special and we are on a journey of healing.
The Dancer in Parts
Our project has always been about bodies and spaces, and this video takes it a step further. Women have always been objectified and reduced to bodies without autonomy. Women have been perceived as things that men are apparently entitled to when they dare to be seen. With this video, we too 'objectify' the woman. We focus on her body - her legs, her waist, her arms, her torso, her head... and yet, she cannot be diminished, and never ceases to be vital and full of life, creativity and agency. In our last video filmed in college, we try to offer you a way of looking at the world in which women can ask to be looked at and acknowledged and still not be asking for it.
Watch this video in a higher definition on our YouTube channel. LINK IN BIO.
