HOMECOMING A Juried Artist Showcase & Benefit "Commemorating the final return home of our heroine and namesake, Saartjie 'Sara' Baartman"

In May 2002, Saartjie (Sara) Baartman's remains were flown back to her homeland, South Africa and laid to rest almost 200 years after she was taken in 1810.

"Her story was forgotten for centuries... but slowly she has been rediscovered, by women in South Africa, in England, in the United States...they have written plays and poems, made films and speeches telling her story in the hopes of reclaiming her torturous past..."
- unknown

“HOMECOMING” is the first of a tradition adopted by The Saartjie Project to commemorate the anniversary of Saartjie’s return home and raise the questions, “What does it mean to commemorate this day?” and “How can we use our work as artists to heal and create dialogue?”

We hope you join us!

“HOMECOMING” will feature friends of The Saartjie Project - women and girls boldly using their original art to heal and change communities. Participants include the Young Women’s Drumming Empowerment Project, Dee Stone, Mahoganee, LEA, Elen Awalom, Chaquis Maliq, Princess of Controversy, Amber Robles – Gordon, Kameelah Rasheed, members of The Saartjie Project and more!

This is not an event to miss. It will be a night of visual art, singing, dancing, drumming, poetry and theatrical performances.

“HOMECOMING” is a benefit to raise funds for the collective to participate in the 2009 Pedagogy & Theatre of the Oppressed International Conference and sustain our work as we expand community programming. This summer The Saartjie Project will be featured in the Capital Fringe Festival in Washington, DC.
