ABOUT US

Led by founder/director, Debra Powell-Wright, For Women Collective is a multi-talented, multi-genre performance arts ensemble that focuses on acknowledging and celebrating the legacies of Black and Brown Women, across the African Diaspora. Using the tools of Creative Writing | Poetry | Song | Dance | Drums | Storytelling, the twenty-five members of For Women Collective came together based on their mutual desire to tell the love and struggle stories that inform their live experiences and the stories of their sistahs around the world. Based on their collection of short stories and poems, For Women: In Tribute to Nina Simone, inspired by the unapologetic art and social change advocacy of our acclaimed High Priestess of Soul, each member of For Women Collective also provides a platform within her individual artistry to welcome new sistahs into the fold. The ensemble hosts two annual signature events: Sisterly Luv Salon, a shop/show/self-care celebration for members, friends and family; and UNSILENCED—Behind The Wall, a theatrical choreopoem in empathy with, and support of intersectional survivors of domestic or sexual violence. By creating a welcoming environment for continuing creativity, community and education, For Women Collective works to ensure that the voices of Black and Brown Women are heard throughout the world.
