We Asked Cree A Few Questions To Learn More About Her Views On Art:
Who are you & what do you do?
My name is Cree Sahidah. I am a mother, wife, entrepreneur, artist and so much more.
We might as well ask Why do we have a soul? Why art? Because art is everything. I know it sounds broad and I dislike vague and broad concepts but this one is fitting. Art. Is. Everywhere. It's your clothes, the way you comb your hair, your vocabulary, the way you walk. I chose art because art is endless because our imaginations have no beginning nor an end. Art is innate and is embedded in our history. We humans were destined to create & I refuse to turn my back on my human instincts.
What is the best part about being an artist?
What is your dream project?
Oh boy. I can only pick one? I can't do that. I HAVE to pick two. First one is to build Project Human X art centers all over the world. I want to provide a space where people can thrive. I fantasize having vertical farms, gallery spaces & dance studios in these art centers. A rooftop garden. Maybe a coffee shop. But nonetheless, a space that provides well being to the community no matter how much money an individual has. I want EVERYONE to experience it. And my second dream? To go back to Madagascar & visit the children I worked with in the Kelilalina villages. I want to bring Project Human X there & I want to give.
