About Project X
Project X is about changing the conversations and perceptions around dance of the African and Caribbean diaspora in Scotland. Through profiling practitioners and platforming the diverse styles, we celebrate our heritage and broaden the mainstream consciousness. Embedded through all of our programmes is education through creative learning. We encourage all those who take part to be empowered with the historical knowledge and its contemporary impact in every context they move in. Project X is collectively run by choreographer and director Mele Broomes, visual artist and researcher Ashanti Harris, and creative producer Rhea Lewis.
We are inspired to use X in acknowledgement to our elders in the civil rights activist emancipation movement, who used X in place of their slave surname as an act of refusal and empowerment. In Algebra X can symbolise any number and we use this as inspiration for infinite possibility. X marks the spot - the point in which our diasporic identities, movement, historical and contemporary contexts all meet. X is the space for us to imagine and build our future.
