Full Length Performance Poetry Feature
Jade Phoenix is an engaging and emerging storyteller and performance poet who holds their identities close to their art and tattoos their vulnerability on their sleeve, as a fierce Trans*Femme, they give themselves to their lived experience and empowered truth as an offering to their transcestors whose resistance has literally paved the way forward, and a gift to their audience as a vision for a collective liberated future.
Jade Phoenix offers educational workshops centered around how to support and uplift Trans and Gender Non-Conforming folx (Specifically Trans Womn/Femmes of Color) within their own communities. They also offer a panel facilitation for trans folks within your community/organization as a means of connecting them to resources, and educating allies and community on practical ways to show up in solidarity with their trans* and gender non-conforming friends/family.
Performance Healing Spaces
Part of Jade's personal healing process is found in her ability to connect to the power of performance as a healing art. She believes that by creating safe spaces for specific communities to gather and witness each other in creative expression and performance, we can work together as communities to hold space for collective healing, resistance and liberation. Jade has a special understanding of the intricacies and nuance in how to create, nurture, and hold these spaces in her communities and can bring a performance healing space/event like this to your campus, organization or community.
