Join us as we welcome our first guest, Arielle Julia Brown, writer, activist and creator of Love Balm for My SpiritChild: Testimonies of Healing Justice through Mothers’ Memory. 

Arielle Julia Brown has been working as a professional theatre artist over the last 7 years. Having worked most intimately with 7Stages Theatre in Atlanta, Ga and Theatre Without Borders, Arielle’s theatre work is rooted in promoting international exchange and dialogue through theatre. Arielle received her B.A. from Pomona College where she studied Theatre and Africana Studies. She has worked most often as a playwright, film maker and teaching artist. The creator of two original applied theatre workshop series- Liberation Songs at Morehouse College and Love Balm for My Spiritchild at 7Stages and Eastside Arts Alliance, Arielle is a theatre teaching artist at Destiny Arts Center.


Love Balm for my SpiritChild was born out of the desire to help stretch justice in America beyond the bounds of the judicial and into the commemorative. Mothers are among the greatest conduits of commemorative justice. The workshop explores mothers’ memory as a political/spiritual/creative force and historical document that works in resistance to systems of domination and fights for a healing justice that only these women givers of life can reclaim. This workshop inspires internal healing for mothers in personal and communal mourning. The four part workshop series honors and nourishes the spirit of loving and healing justice for mothers and performance artists. We hope that today’s reading of these testimonies will infuse the collective consciousness of our communities with a new and sacred awareness of the precious healing found in mothers’ memory.
