Bronte Velez Advaya Spiritual Ecology

As a black-latinx trans-disciplinary artist, designer, trickster, and wake-worker, their eco-social art praxis lives at the intersections of black feminist placemaking & prophetic community traditions, environmental justice, and death doulaship.

They embody this commitment of attending to black health/imagination, commemorative justice and hospicing white supremacy through serving as creative director for Lead to Life design collective, media director for Oakland-rooted farm and nursery Planting Justice , and quotidian black queer life-making ever-committed to humour & liberation, ever-marked by grief at the distance made between us and all of life.
