Ashe Collective x decolonizing my vagina

3 is my power number and I’m going into my third year with The Ashe Collective, a platform I created that focuses on ancestral storytelling and community outreach. decolonizing my vagina has been the main vessel for The Ashe Collective, with all proceeds of each past performance run being donated to non-profits after artists were paid. We've been fortunate enough to give to Maisiti Yukayeke Taino, Black Lives Matter, Jewish Voice For Peace, UNICEF for Hurricane Maria and Irene, and The Audre Lorde Project.

In a wild and ambitious leap of faith, I am looking to raise $66,000 over the next three months. If all two thousand plus people I know were to donate $33 or share my GoFundMe campaign, I could do it. Crazy idea, but worth a shot!

All funds raised go towards the production of the international tour, extending discount tickets to people of color, and the facilitation of free creative workshops on decolonizing for marginalized communities of color. I believe in this work wholeheartedly, have seen it’s impact thus far, and know this is where I can give back as an artist and activist. Your support in anyway (be it donating $3, $33, or sharing the campaign) is greatly appreciated.

The Ashe Collective is an interdisciplinary art platform that strives to hold a creative space to foster healing thru ancestral storytelling and community outreach.

The Ashe Collective was birthed from the cosmic mind of Cristina Pitter while undergoing the first iterations of her solo show, "decolonizing my vagina", which featured the music of Starr Busby and the direction of Jordana De La Cruz.

Stemming from an urge to honor more of her ancestry, along with navigating the realities of being a queer fat mixed raced woman in this country, Cristina realized what her next step was in her world of storytelling and outreach.

“decolonizing my vagina” has been the main vessel for The Ashe Collective the past two years, with all the proceeds of each past performance run being donated to non-profits after artists were paid. We’ve been fortunate enough to give to Maisiti Yukayeke Taino, Black Lives Matter, Jewish Voice For Peace, UNICEF for Hurricane Maria and Irene, and The Audre Lorde Project.
