Ubuntu 5

by | Sep 20, 2019

Ubuntu is an ancient African term that describes our relationships with others and how those relationships shape who we are. It literally translates as “I am because we are.” This is the theme of Ubuntu 5. It is about community, our interdependence, our diversity. In the words of Desmond Tutu, “We belong in a bundle of life.” We are a group of 5 women artists coming together to create an exhibition celebrating humanity. The variety of styles and media reflects our person views of what it is to be human.
Because we’ve found connection and community through our art, we call ourselves Ubuntu 5.
