Catch a FREE screening of Yogi Dada’s award-winning film, Graffica, in a live format on Saturday, April 23, 2022. New Yorker, Yogi Dada, has taken the arts community by storm with her wearable art, known as “ear bangers,” “dadas,” and “diddies.”
An Award-winning Film
Currently running the film festival circuit, Graffica has already garnered at least three awards, including “Best Black Lens Short Film” at the 2021 Sidewalk Film Festival in Birmingham, Alabama. Graffica was produced and funded in part by the Dorothy Jemison Day Theatre of Alabama.
Graffica is told through an astounding fusion of poetry, visual art, African drumming, and personal interviews. Fans get to see Yogi’s heart as an artist and understand the struggle she has overcome to express herself as a Black female artist.
Graffica Film Born Out of Tragedy
Directed and produced by Yogi Dada, Graffica reveals the soul of an inimitable artist. She has produced an array of colorful and thought-provoking works amidst tragedy and suppression throughout her young life.
After studying with professors who discouraged her style of self-expression, Yogi is proving the naysayers wrong. She continues to get booked as a guest speaker, singer, poet, and sign language performer across the country. This includes invites to display her artwork in city arts hubs including New York and Atlanta.
Yogi has even had international stars such as Jill Scott, Countess Vaughn, and Melonie Fiona, “rock dem dadas.” All a testament that your gift will make room for you.
Rock Dem Dadas Campaign
As grassroots and mainstream support swells, the Birmingham community may not realize that it’s home to a shooting star. Yogi Dada’s work is frequently noticed throughout the city, many Yogi Dada ambassadors often stopped and asked, “Are those Yogi Dada’s?” Why, yes, dear of course! And you may be able to catch a rare deal on Yogi Dada’s unique creations if you’re lucky.
