Dreamseeds is a space to honor our visions for the future.
About the exhibition: Move Slowly: Dreamseeds is on view at Gallery CA, at 440 E Oliver St, from October 21-November 18. Move Slowly: Dreamseeds is a visionary exhibition and community healing space, co-created by Hannah Brancato and Sanahara Ama Chandra. This community healing space and art exhibit features visual and sound “portraits” of five anti-sexual violence activists: Ignacio Rivera, Jadel
ynn St Dre, Alexis Flanagan, Sanahara Ama Chandra, and Nuala Cabral; and workshop participants from a series of five community workshops in Baltimore. These pieces create a heart filling homage to those who are dreaming and fighting their way into freedom, and a roadmap to help us head in that direction. Co-created by Sanahara Ama Chandra and Hannah Brancato, we started from a place of understanding that, from all of our individual and collective experiences ranging from our points of pain to our points of bliss, we have inside of us sparks of ideas that are the seeds with which we can co-create a new world.
The final opportunity to experience the Dreamseeds exhibition, organized and created by Sanahara Ama Chandra and Hannah Brancato at GALLERY CA, is this coming Friday, November 18, 4-7:00p!

More about Nuala: Nuala Cabral (she/her) is an educator, activist and award-winning filmmaker, who has produced films about gender based violence and helped young people create films about the topic as well. Her film Walking Home, about street harassment, became her entry point to activism and organizing over a decade ago. While earning a Master’s degree in Media Studies and Production from Temple University in 2010, Nuala co-founded FAAN Mail (Fostering Activism & Alternatives Now!) a media literacy/activist project formed by women of color to address gender-based violence in media and in our communities. In 2015, Nuala established the consent workshop program through the University Community Collaborative at Temple University, reaching over 3,000 high school students across Philadelphia. This program was inspired by a film her high school students, young Black women, produced about sexual violence. In 2019, she co-founded Educators for Consent Culture, a collective that works to combat r**e culture in schools and beyond through edcuation and advocacy. Currently, Nuala serves as Program Officer for the Independence Public Media Foundation.
