DTA.SPACE is a rolling digital residency programme open to practitioners of African heritage exploring, creating, re-creating and re-imagining (Pan)African cultures. Residents take over DTA.SPACE for three months at a time, communicating their practice and insights as they see fit.
Lisa George is interdisciplinary designer and researcher. Her research focuses on intergenerational Afro-Caribbean hair practices, cultural safe spaces and autonomous archives. Throughout her Cornrows and Headwraps project she uses a hand made braiding tool to collect the stories of each participant. In completion the gathered material is added to those who have previously entered the space thus becoming a part of Afro-Caribbean history and expanding the archive.
Lisa continues to use this project as a platform to amplify the narratives of those of African descent.
