La’Sheia Oubré – South Carolina

IMG_3220 2La’Sheia is leading The Charleston Rhizome of Alternate ROOTS to initiate the “conNECKted” project. She will lead five Porch Conversations in five neighborhoods in Charleston, South Carolina where community gentrification is starting to occur. An inter-generational public presentation with an art installation, performances and informative visual documents will be developed and presented next fall.

Alternate ROOTS supports the creation and presentation of original art that is rooted in communities of place, tradition or spirit. We are a group of artists and cultural organizers based in the South creating a better world together. As Alternate ROOTS, we call for social and economic justice and are working to dismantle all forms of oppression—everywhere.
